“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.

This training is great for any adult who works with LGBTQ youth.
