Become an ally for those disadvantaged by intersectionality in your community
Ever wondered how the multiple layers of your identity combine to create your unique self?

You’ll learn from Kiddy Smile’s personal experiences as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community what you, as well as society, can do to address the often negative consequences of intersectionality in our world today.
Explore how intersectionality relates to systems of privilege
Only by acknowledging the interconnected nature of our society’s systems of discrimination, are we able to call them out and fight for equality.

As you identify your own personal intersections and how they make you unique, you’ll consider how they’ve positively or negatively impacted your life as well as the lives of those around you.
