The Queer Youth Stories:
Op-Ed Series in partnership with Openly

The image background resembles white notebook paper. The logo for The Queer Youth Dialogues is displayed in the top centre of the image.  The title text reads “The Queer Youth Stories: A series of Op-Eds authored by global LGBTIQ Youth”. Below this text the image displays the five partner logos for this series: ILGA World, Openly, the Global Queer Youth Network, the Office of the UN Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth, and the UN Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.

The Queer Youth Stories. This series of publications seek to amplify issues and opinions from a youth perspective, speak directly to the experiences of youth voices on the ground in activist activity, and explore the future of our collective ongoing fight for equality.


In partnership with Openly News we are proud to continue to amplify youth voices. Openly is a global digital platform delivering fair, accurate and impartial lgbt+ news to a world that often isn’t. Powered by original coverage from the Thomson Reuters foundation, Openly also aggregates select lgbt+ news and authoritative reports from other sources, with the ambition of becoming the ultimate destination for trusted lgbt+ news and information from around the world.
