We aim to study the issues and prospects young people face with online anti-LGBTIQ hate speech. Our findings will contribute to a Reach and Teach Toolkit. This toolkit will offer practical methods and insights to youth educators, enhancing their ability to work effectively in this field.
We will create user-friendly Open Education Resources and a guide for educators on inclusive teaching methods. It will also host an international training event for youth and educators, using these resources to combat anti-LGBTIQ online hate speech. The goal is to significantly improve knowledge, skills, and resilience in both educators and youth.
We aim to give young people and educators a platform for networking and discussion through Local Assemblies and an online Digital Hub. The project will produce a guidebook for setting up LGBTQ youth assemblies and will initiate at least four such assemblies in various countries. These assemblies will develop action plans to combat online anti-LGBTIQ hate speech. The Digital Hub will facilitate knowledge sharing and peer support. The expected outcome is increased resilience and digital skills among young people, as well as enhanced teaching strategies for educators.
