How to Make Your Digital Classroom More LGBTQ-Friendly

It Gets Better began as a social media campaign and transformed into a global nonprofit supporting and empowering LGBTQ+ youth. The organization's digital roots have come full circle in recognition of the increasing presence of digital classrooms. To ensure that online learning environments remain "safe and inclusive places for LGBTQ+ students," It Gets Better released this action list, "How to Make Your Digital Classroom More LGBTQ-Friendly." The article provides great guidelines for educators, covering topics like pronoun etiquette, building inclusive curriculum, and visible allyship. Additionally, the resource links out to several helpful tools found across the organization's website. For example, readers can check out the glossary of LGBTQ-inclusive terminology, browse a plethora of educational materials, select free-to-download Zoom backgrounds designed by LGBTQ artists, and reference a comprehensive resource list to support students. At the end of the list, readers will find links to all of It Gets Better's social media channels, which offer additional content that may be of interest to educators and students.
