The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated forms of isolation have left a profound impact on transgender, nonbinary, and otherwise gender diverse youth in ways that go beyond the dangers of infection. The closure of in-person classrooms has resulted in decreased access to social support for students as well as the abrupt return to potentially unsupportive home environments. As hospitals remained overwhelmed combating the COVID-19 virus, it resulted in delays in access to gender-affirming care for many. This workshop will explore the ways in which children and youth embracing their identity and living openly in their truth, those in early stages of self-expression, and those living in unsupportive environments have been uniquely impacted by social isolation. This workshop also will address associated concerns surrounding returning to physical school environments and the impact it may have on them and their families.
