LGBTQ Undocumented Youth

GLAD's Community Engagement Coordinator, Julián Cancino, in partnership with youth leaders at Student Immigrant Movement, will facilitate a discussion titled "LGBTQ Undocumented Youth" at the Massachusetts Comission on LGBTQ Youth Community Convening.

"LGBTQ Undocumented Youth" is a facilitated discussion on the intersection of legal status, gender, and sexuality. We will first learn about the real life challenges of undocumented immigrants who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) youth including education inequality, family rejection, and detention and deportation. We will then shift the discussion to the role of advocates and allies in supporting LGBTQ undocumented youth in Massachusetts. Presented by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and Student Immigrant Movement (SIM).
