Eureka! #Love is Love! LGBTQ+ Youth in California and Baden-Württemberg
Eureka! Ländle Meets California is a digital event series on the sister state partnership between Baden-Württemberg and California.
Adolescence is a complicated time for all young people, but it can be especially challenging for LGBTQ+ youth: as they are developing into who they truly are and trying to find their place in the world, they are also facing discrimination, harassment and even violence based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. A support system, role models, and community can make all the difference during this time.
As June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, we will address these issues for our EUREKA – Ländle Meets California series and bring together two organizations in Baden-Württemberg and California that work with queer youth.
Our guests will give us a valuable insight into their respective work, including the challenges and obstacles they face on a daily basis, and talk about best practices for empowering LGBTQ+ youth as well as fighting for acceptance and equality.
The virtual discussion will be moderated and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
With: June Wahl, Lambda Baden-Württemberg and Justin Tindall, It Gets Better Project
Moderated by: Annie Heger
