Creating Protective Environments for LGBTQ+ Youth Within Schools and Communities to Prevent Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence

Tuesday, 30 March 2021

Research and evidence-based strategies to prevent sexual and intimate partner violence continue to advance every year, but in technical assistance documents and research, LGBTQ+ communities are often left out through a focus on heteronormative relationships and the use of binary gendered language. Prevention practitioners can bridge the gap between research and practice by learning from and creating prevention programs by and for LGBTQ+ communities.

Join PreventConnect on this web conference with guests from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, Inside Out Youth Services, and SMYAL to explore how prevention practitioners are going beyond the binary when engaging men and boys and creating protective environments to prevent sexual and intimate partner violence for LGBTQ+ youth. Guests on this web conference will also discuss the intersecting norms that uphold violence as well as homophobia and transphobia, and discuss how the field of sexual and intimate partner violence prevention can work towards LGBTQ+ competency and true allyship in gender transformative ways.
