Breaking myths  about the LGBTQIA+ community!

Myth #1: Gender identity is your biological gender assigned at birth and also how others perceive your gender.

Reality: Gender identity is entirely personal: it’s how you experience your gender internally and think about yourself.

Myth #2: When someone comes out to you: it’s fine to let other people know.

Reality: Coming out can be an extremely personal and taxing decision. Don't make it your gossip by spreading the news without their consent and respect their wishes.

Myth #3: Gender-neutral bathrooms are exclusively for LGBTQIA+ people.

Reality: Gender-neutral bathrooms are meant to be used by everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, expression. Eg: A mother taking her infant son to a gender-neutral restroom

Myth #4: Being around members of the LGBTQIA+ community or accessing information endangers wellbeing of children.

Reality: Learning about or spending time with people who are LGBTQIA+ doesn't influence the sexual or gender identity of minors, nor does it harm their wellbeing. In fact it  helps normalize the term & be empathetic towards others.
