meet the community.
As part of our ongoing commitment to LGBTQ+ education, QEDU supplements our education resources with the personal stories of real people in and around the LGBTQ+ community. These stories may provide insight into the way in which queer identity plays a role in the lives of every day people. If you are interested in becoming a part of this initiative and would like to share your story, contact a representative.
