Healthy Teen Relationships

Providing Resources and Information

Respect for both oneself and others is a key characteristic of healthy youth relationships. In contrast, in unhealthy relationships, one partner tries to  exert control and power over the other physically, sexually, and/or emotionally.

Alaska LGBT or Questioning

Resources – Helping Young Alaskans Succeed

What is LGBT?

LGBTQ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning and is part of a big thing called sexuality and gender. You may have heard these terms before or know someone who may identify as LGBTQ.  Two same-gender people loving one another romantically or someone who is a different gender than what they were given at birth are not new concepts.  Many Alaska Native and other Native cultures have stories or traditional roles or words in their Native language that describe people who were LGBTQ and Native.  (Source:  I Know Mine)
