The Triangle Speakers Program

January 2020

In January 2020 The Triangle Speakers Program from the Santa Cruz Diversity Center sent a group of non-binary LGBTQ+ folks to meet with our three boy's circles in Santa Cruz and Watsonville. The four volunteers who sat with our middle school boys shared their experiences of overcoming adversity, their joys and struggles, the fear and the love, and the highs and lows they have experienced in their lives as LGBTQ+ people.

They each told their stories honestly and then gave the boys an opportunity to ask questions. Our goal was to expand the boys' understanding and open their minds to non-binary people and to help them be more accepting of LGBTQ+ people. We want to thank these wonderful volunteers who took the time to share their lives with us.

Our program is active in the Pajaro Valley Unified School District and Live Oak School District.
