Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth
Rehoboth, DE. – Camp Rehoboth and Planned Parenthood of Delaware teamed up today, hosting a workshop focused on support for LGBTQ+ youth.
At the workshop, parents and supporters were given tools and gained knowledge on how to support their loved ones.
Camp Rehoboth says it’s important that allies deepen their understanding of LGBTQ+ issues and that will help them identify and address many micro-aggressions against LGBTQ+ youth. “It’s helping kids feel comfortable being who they are. Its’s being an advocate in the classroom, in sports teams, or other areas that these kids don’t have support,” said Sal Seeley.
We’re told anyone regardless of sexual identity or orientation can be considered an ally. Camp Rehoboth urges supporters to seek advocacy opportunities to continue building those relationships with LGBTQ+ youth.
