Sheffield LGBTQ+ Parenting Group
A new Facebook group for LGBTQ+ parents in Sheffield and those planning to become parents. This group is relatively new and if anyone would like to join they will be very welcome! It’s a closed group which means only group members will see things you post or comment on there.
Young people: not straight: not narrow
Young people are increasingly open to relationships with people from across the gender and sexuality spectrum, and rejecting identity labels. Is this a myth pushed by a small number of activists, celebrities and cultural commentators or is the gay-straight binary collapsing for young people in the UK? This talk will explore how young people’s lives are playing out in an era of dating technology, celebrity and the recent closure of LGBTQ youth groups and social venues. How do the ongoing challenges that young LGBTQ people face – bullying in education, harassment on the streets and difficult, sometimes violent, family responses to coming out – impact on their identity and behaviour? And what does this all mean for therapists who want to create safe, welcoming spaces that offer young people genuine connection, validation and the chance to heal and grow?
