This partnership – called INQYR (International Partnership for Queer Youth Resilience) brings together over fifty academic and community partners from Canada, the United States, Latin America, and the United Kingdom. Partners include partners from Barry University’s Center for Human Rights and Social Justice, Mexico’s ActúaDF AC, Toronto’s Centre for Spanish Speaking Peoples, Loyola University Chicago’s School of Social Work, Anglia Ruskin University’s Department of Psychology, King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience, Rutgers University’s School of Social Work, University of Southern California’s School of Social Work, the Ontario Association of Social Workers and The Hospital for Sick Children’s Department of Social Work.

The team will work to address the needs of gender and sexual minority youth and their use of information and communication technologies within diverse global contexts, while also training the next generation of scholars and practitioners working with LGBTQ+ youth.
