Welcome back to Six Minute Sex Ed, the podcast that helps people talk about sex, relationships, and growing up. Created and hosted by Sex Education Teacher Kim Cavill. Find her at www.teaandintimacy.com - https://twitter.com/sexposparenting - https://www.instagram.com/sixminutesexed/
This episode is Part 2 of a three part series on creating queer inclusive spaces for kids! This week, I talk to Carolyn Wahlskog. Carolyn Wahlskog (she/her/hers) is a queer, white, cis woman and the Executive Director of Housing at 360 Youth Services in Naperville where she works to support young people experiencing homelessness. She previously ran the first suburban transitional housing program geared specifically for LGBTQ youth. She has spent her entire career focused on the needs of LGBTQ, particularly trans youth, and their families to access safe and affirming care at school, in health care, in housing and when accessing the legal system. She coordinates a monthly networking group called the Community Network: Professionals Supporting LGBTQ youth and is the co-coordinator of Transformative Justice Law Project's Name Change Mobilization. I asked Carolyn how school and teachers make LGBTQ+ young people and families feel welcome and create spaces where all young people can thrive.
This episode is Level Two, perfect for tweens, teens, and adults.
