Welcome to the 'Pride Month 2022' edition of Educator Resources. To commemorate Pride Month this June (and beyond), the links below include recommended resources to support the awareness, acceptance, and celebration of the 2SLGBTQ+ (Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and additional members) community.

Educator Resources:

  1. I Am Skylar is a short film by Rachel Bower that shares the "emotionally compelling story of an articulate 14-year-old girl who is thoughtfully defining her future and the woman she is to become. Surrounded by a family and a community who show her unconditional love as she follows her personal path, Skylar faces the complexities of being a transgender girl on the cusp of puberty with refreshing honesty and unshakeable dignity."
  2. In this video, Dr. Myra Laramee, B.Ed., M.Ed., Ph.D, of Fisher River First Nation shares what it means to be Two-Spirit, including the history and origin of the word.
  3. Curated by Facing History & Ourselves, here are 10 Resources for Teaching LGBTQIA+ History.
