The current group of young people in high-school and college are more supportive of equality for gay and transgender people than any other age-category.
At the same time, there is an epidemic of homelessness among queer youth, students risk their safety at school just by coming out, and the children of gay and lesbian parents are being harmed by government endorsed restrictions on families.
Equality Utah is devoted to protecting youth across the state. By empowering young people, Equality Utah helps give power to a fresh and courageous voice for equal rights.
