“I am Me” is an educational training video that explores the challenges our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, etc. (LGBTQ+) young people face and how adults can be supportive allies. The video begins with the concepts of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation and then explores the challenges that LGBTQ+ youth face through personal stories from young people and adult advocates. The video ends with youth sharing how they need to be supported and a checklist on how to participate in acts of allyship for LGBTQ+ youth.

The National LGBT Cancer Network is collecting stories of LGBTQ+ lives during COVID-19 and quarantine.
Share Your Quarantine Story
“While we usually collect stories here about the impact of tobacco and cancer on LGBTQ+ people’s lives, in light of COVID-19 the National LGBT Cancer Network wants to expand our focus to collect stories about how coronavirus and self-quarantining are affecting our lives. These stories will be shared with partner LGBTQ+ organizations. It is our goal to uplift a wide range of experiences and perspectives, to help show public health officials, the media, legislators, and ourselves how this pandemic is impacting our communities. We have increased health risks due to high smoking rates, high rates of HIV and cancer, and proven barriers to accessing health care. We also have less economic stability, less social support, and a large number of potentially isolated elders, all of which may leave us especially vulnerable during this time. We need to record the stories of how this is impacting us.
As an LGBTQ+ person, how has this virus and social distancing impacted your life?”
“…Smoking was associated with more than a doubling of odds of disease progression in people who had already developed COVID.”
