The Tribal Youth Resource Center is working to bring acceptance, inclusiveness, empathy, compassion, support, and equity for our youth who identify as Two-Spirit and Native LGBTQ+ relatives; with this resources page, we hope to bring understanding and education for those who are working with Native youth in their communities.
