Symposium ‘Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity in Children and Youth’

On the 21st of November 2017, the Foster Care Research Group Groningen and Cornerstones Jeugdzorg organized a symposium about ‘Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity in Children and Youth' to mark the 27th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). The symposium gathered students, researchers, practitioners and policy makers from various backgrounds to discuss the experiences and needs of LGBTQ identified (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) children and youth. During the symposium, Hanneke Felten (Movisie) and Jan Bridget (GALYIC) gave inspiring keynote lectures on minority stress, empowerment and homophobia awareness. In addition, the Audre project was launched during the event. We look back on very successful event: a great collaboration between research and practice, over 60 participants registered for the event, and over 500 people showing interest in the symposium on Facebook. The symposium was supported by Sustainable Society and organized by Mijntje ten Brummelaar, Mónica López López at our Faculty, together with Leo Vincent (Cornerstones Jeugdzorg).
