Los Angeles HIV Prevention
LGBTQ Resource Packet
For the last two years, we have been meeting with a Connect to Protect committee with a coalition of partners from Los Angeles. The committee has worked on a LGBTQ resource packet for two years and are finally ready to go to print.
The LGBTQ resource packet will be distributed District-wide and each principal, nurse, counselor, and health teachers will be provided with a copy of these materials to meet the needs of all our LGBTQ populations in Los Angeles. It will provide useful statistics for administrators, but more importantly, tools that will help the prevention-education in the classroom, awareness among the staff, and information to students regarding services.
We have partnered with our Southern California Gay Straight Alliance network and the University of California University, Los Angeles to help distribute the resource packets to a wider teen and young adult audience and to targeted community service providers for high risk populations like our gay youth.
