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.
Students from multiple independent schools will come together in live, facilitated online discussion. Each session will last one hour, and the group will have several sessions during school year 2019-20. Two warm, experienced faculty will moderate—Michele Grethel from The Spence School, and Walter Bockting form Columbia University.
