Ohio 4-H LGBTQ+ Summit

2019 DETAILS ARE YET TO BE CONFIRMED. SAVE THE DATE: OCTOBER 18-19.

Ohio 4-H is hosting the LGBTQ+ Summit for 4-H youth, professionals, families and allies. LGBTQ+ recognizes anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and any other self-affirming identities. An ally is an individual who does not identify as LGBTQ+, but supports equality for everyone.

  • Share resources to learn about impactful and inclusive programming for all. 
  • Learn about creating safe spaces and find them at the Summit.
