Minus18, Australia’s largest support network for LGBT teens invites members of the LGBTI community and their straight allies to take part in the ‘My Year 7 Self’ tweet chats.
The group will be asking a series of questions on Twitter about sexual and gender diversity in high school and include the hashtag #Year7Self.
You can join the conversation by following the hashtag
Topics to be discussed include:
LGBT issues in High School, 8:30pm AEST Monday 23 September
Role models for LGBT teens, 8:30pm AEST Tuesday 1 October
LGBT Stereotypes, 8:30pm AEST Tuesday 8 October
So, what would you say to your Year 7 self? Do you think there is high school support for LGBT teens? Were there any openly LGBT role models in school? What are the affects of sexual and gender stereotypes in LGBT teens?
"There are so many young LGBT Australians dealing with issues of bullying, social exclusion and depression. This is about showing support for LGBT teens. We are all an important part of each other's lives, regardless of our sexuality or gender identity," said Micah Scott, Minus18 General Manager.
