Israel Gay Youth’s (IGY) International Secretary and Resource Manager Liana Meirom and Coordinator of Arab Groups Nizar Helawy join us to discuss IGY’s work creating welcoming environments across Israel where teens and young adults can freely express their thoughts and feelings on sexual orientation and gender identity. While working with counselors to navigate their experiences and challenges, participants of IGY’s 40+ social and support groups gain a sense of empowerment and invaluable leadership skills.
