Program To Highlight LGBTQ And Ally Harassment

Stop Bullying PhotoThe Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh will host local LGBTQ advocate Kelly Metzgar on Saturday, January 16, 2016 at 7 pm.

Metzgar works with transgender leaders across New York State in securing rights and protections for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. Her discussion will center on bullying and harassment of transgender, gender non-conforming, lesbian, gay and bisexual students as well as current NYS laws protecting students from this type of behavior. She will also focus on supporting families, students and educators. A discussion will follow.

Prior to the discussion, the doors will open at 6 pm for an “Our Whole Lives” open house. OWL is an award-winning, secular human sexuality education program offered by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh each year.

The OWL programming is open to students in the K-1, 4-6 and 7-9 grade levels. Parents and students who are interested in learning more will have the opportunity to review the curriculum and ask questions of the program’s trained facilitators.
