This infographic aims to provide the straight facts on LGBTQ2 youth by addressing the 5 most common myths and misconceptions that surround sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression in schools.

This infographic was inspired by a feature article by Dr. Kristopher Wells that recently appeared in Education Canada Magazine.

The EdCan Network has also released a new Facts on Education fact sheet authored by renowned expert Dr. Kristopher Wells, entitled How can schools support LGBTQ2 students?, which offers evidence-based strategies on how we can make a positive difference for LGBTQ2 students in K-12 schools.

In addition to the downloadable copy of the infographic, which can be posted in staff rooms and classrooms,  here are several practical resources available to support teachers in building their knowledge and confidence on this subject matter.
