Ackerman Lecture LGBTQ+ Youth and Schooling: 

Stephen T. Russell (he/him), Ph.D., Priscilla Pond Flawn Regents Professor in Child Development, Chair of the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, and Amy Johnson McLaughlin Director of the School of Human Ecology, the University of Texas at Austin

Since January there have been more than 300 pieces of anti-LGBT legislation introduced in 42 states; many of those bills focus on LGBTQ youth and schools. Many contemporary LGBTQ+ youth come out at school, and homophobia remains common for individual experiences of victimization as well as in the climate of schools. Professor Stephen Russell considers the use of research to advance social change for social justice and in this presentation, he will discuss (1) advances in developmental sciences that illuminate understanding of the lives and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+) children and youth, and (2) advances in educational research that have identified policies and practices that support LGBTQ+ and all students.
