Accompanying LGBTQ+ Youth

Mental Health and Joy for LGBTQ+ Teens, Phiwa Langeni – Video and Discussion Outline

Questions for Discussion:

  1. How did Jill’s question to Rev. Langeni show an implicit bias, that pastoral care to LGBTQ+ teens is always about hardship and struggle? How might joy be a very, very helpful alternative voice to lift up?
  2. What are examples in culture that can be lifted up to LGBTQ+ youth that speak to this joy that can be discovered?
  3. How can we disrupt this narrative and help youth find the joy in this discovery of their self-identity?
