For many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) people, strength and healing is cultivated in community with other LGBTQ people. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, many of us are struggling with a sense of aloneness and social isolation, are coming up against challenges in our relationships, are back in our childhood homes, or are far away from those who affirm and celebrate us. 
Additionally, many transgender and gender non-conforming folks are without the resources necessary to cope with increased experiences of gender dysphoria. Presented by the Director of Kip's Division of Gender and Sexuality, this workshop provides a space for LGBTQ students to connect with one another, find support and care in-community, and identify ways to cope with the unique challenges they're experiencing during this pandemic.
