Sincere thanks to our collaborator producing this story project, I’m from Driftwood, the LGBTQ story archive.

Participants in the Getting AIR Series may log-in below, using the credentials provided by their schools, to access ISDN’s facilitated online discussion groups.
ISDN in partnership with Columbia’s Program for the Study of LGBT Health presents the Getting AIR Series (Acceptance, Inclusion, and Respect) - Exploring Transgender and Gender Non-Binary Identities for Grades 10, 11, and 12.
The purpose of Getting AIR is to develop opportunities for students to learn more about diversity in gender identity and expression, connect with peers, and receive social support. To achieve this goal, we bring together students from participating schools using an online platform.
Getting AIR consists of facilitated online group discussions via Zoom teleconferencing and a collection of short videos with first-person accounts of transgender and non-binary youth and adults.
Pre-registered students from multiple, participating schools will come together in live, facilitated online discussion groups. Each session will last one hour, and each discussion group will meet 3 times during school year 2018-19. Online discussion groups will be co-facilitated by faculty from ISDN and Columbia’s Program for the Study of LGBT Health.
