Why Justice for Queer and Trans Youth Goes Beyond Bathrooms

Rewire, 3.10.17

The practice of having LGBTQ youth of color define their own research parameters is mobilizing a far-reaching project that has so far collected more than 6,000 surveys by and for LGBTQ and GNC youth across the country. Called What’s Your Issue?, the project launched by the Public Science Project (PSP) at CUNY encompasses topics like relationships, housing, education, employment, and general interests. For the project’s GNC youth advisory group members, the guiding principle was “no more research about us without us,” said PSP’s director, MarĂ­a Torre.
