    Research shows the positive impact of LGBTQIA+ inclusive schools on the achievement of students, particularly LGBTQIA+ students of color furthest from educational justice, as well as the benefits to their non-LGBTQIA+ classmates. The following video offers strategies and helps volunteers build skills for supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Plus (LGBTQIA+) students and affirm inclusion of LGBTQIA+ students, staff, and community in Seattle Public Schools.
