Robbie Lettieri, the Youth Peer Services Training and Credentialing Manager at Families Together in NY State (FTNYS), will discuss the meanings of gender, sex assigned at birth/biological sex, intersex, transgender, gender fluidity, and more!

A diverse group of panelists will share their experiences and address common struggles within the LGBTQ+ community regarding emotional wellbeing and access to support services. We will also dive into how culture impacts the LGBTQ+ community, specifically within the BIPOC community. We’ll engage in some brief activities to uncover our own prejudices and explore opportunities to create inclusive youth peer environments.
