Research for Change: Centering LGBTQ+ Lives & Communities

Research Impact Talk - Queer(ing) Communities to Promote Justice and Equity for Trans Youth


In this presentation, Dr. Paceley will center the experiences and expertise of transgender youth to identify community-level strategies to promote support, equity, and justice. She will utilize findings from research conducted with transgender youth in the Midwest to provide implications for shifting communities away from stigma and toward support, while also drawing on the strengths of both transgender youth and their communities.


Learning Objectives: At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the ways in which stigma and oppression in communities impact health, well-being, and other outcomes among transgender youth
  • Identify strategies for increasing support and acceptance for transgender youth at the community-level
  • Situate justice and equity strategies across the socioecological model to understand their interactions across systems


Respondent: Kyle Velte, associate professor, Law School
