    "Our Students, Their Stories” Portrait Project!

    Seattle Public Schools Health Education Office and local Seattle photographer Nate Gowdy are joining forces to highlight the stories of our amazing LGBTQ2+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer and more) students in Seattle Public Schools, as well as LGBTQ2+ staff in a photo book and portrait exhibit.

    The “Our Students, Their Stories” project will showcase the strength, resilience, and unapologetic pride of these queer and trans students. This project will also highlight the loving and supportive families of these LGBTQ2+ young people, as well as shine light on some LGBTQ2+ staff who help lift up queer and trans youth in big and small ways every day.

    The photo book and stories gathered will be used to inform staff training, classroom education, community engagement, parent education, and to celebrate our students’ individual journeys today, and act as a touchstone for future generations.

    We are seeking additional LGBTQ2+ students of all ages (and their family members) to participate. Photo shoots will be held in January and February, require a signed photo release form, and take approximately two hours. More information can be found at the Health Education webpage or contact Lisa Love, health education manager, at or 206-252-0982.
