LGBTQ youth—like all youth—do best in affirming, supportive environments. And, like all children, they deserve to feel safe and loved.

But, unfortunately, too many LGBTQ youth aren’t getting enough support from their families and communities, which they need to be healthy and to flourish. Without that support, LGBTQ youth will likely struggle with enduring abuse, facing homelessness, and even considering suicide.

Equality Utah is committed to protecting the rights of Utah’s most vulnerable communities, including LGBTQ youth. In the links to the following articles, you can read about the progress we’ve made so far, and you can discover how you can personally help to make a fair and just Utah for LGBTQ youth and their families.

All young people deserve a safe and affirming environment where they can learn and grow – regardless of their orientation or gender identity.
