Youth identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual (LGB) and transgender/gender non-conforming (TGNC) are at increased risk of sexual violence compared with straight, cisgender youth. School policies and practices inclusive of differing sexual orientations and gender identities may mitigate this risk. We studied the effects of four school policies and practices on the risk of sexual violence among LGB and TGNC students. Participants will learn about our findings and their policy implications and will contribute to the interpretation of results.
This workshop is sponsored by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) as part of the Prevention track to support Rape Prevention and Education program.
