In this episode of the Caring GreatlyTM podcast, Dr. Goepferd and I discuss the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on LGBTQ+ children and young adults. We delve into the challenges of Pride month under quarantine, and the importance of affirming and celebrating the unique identities of LGBTQ+ kids. We also look at issues of intersectionality, and the importance of listening to all members of the community across lines of gender, sex, race, sexuality, language, and other identities.
