Black and LGBTQ: Approaching Intersectional Conversations

Resource on discussion starting points from the Trevor Project. If you’re considering engaging with people who identify as non-Black in your life about your identities, it’s important to remember that the process of having difficult conversations does not begin or end with the discussion itself. It is essential to consider your well-being and safety at each step in the journey. Here are some approaches to consider before, during, and after a difficult conversation to make sure the dialogue—and your mental health—stays safe.
