Safety and Self-Defense for LGBTQ+ Youth
Although many LGBTQ+ youth are more likely now to be socially accepted, there are still increased risks to coming out. They are more likely to be targeted for violence (from teasing and bullying to outright assault), at higher risk for dating violence and victimization, exposed to negative or careless comments that reinforce hetero norms, and find fewer resources for help due to overt or implicit hostility by school staff, family, or law enforcement.

On top of that, they are still susceptible to the same pressures and pitfalls facing other teens: exploring on their own or with their friends, riding a bus solo, or going to Bumbershoot with a few buddies. They (or their friends) are beginning to drive. They are beginning to date. They may have part-time or summer jobs. They may be going through puberty, and their whole world of friends and boundaries and appropriate relationships is in free-fall.

On top of that, you may be concerned about peer pressure and a cultural environment that puts queer youth at increased risk for violence.

They could use some skills to help augment the experience they are beginning to acquire.

In this class, your LGBTQ+ teen will learn to recognize red flags that someone may mean harm, plan safe exits from iffy situations, practice physical moves (just in case), and learn to find supportive self-care. All in age-appropriate language and concepts.

This class is sponsored by the Discover Your Power program of the WAVE Foundation.
