Building A Brighter Future

Friday, November 9
Skirball Cultural Center
8:30AM - 5PM



Penny Lane Centers proudly presents EDGY, a one day conference to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices, as well as gather resources from leading experts and organizations to create a more supportive environment for LGBTQ+ youth and families.

Ensuring the safety of all our youth is the responsiibility of our communities, schools, families, caregivers, and anyone who interacts with LGBTQ+ youth who are gender variant. These aspects may include expectations of presentation, behavior, sexual-orientation, names or pronouns, preferred restroom, or other qualities. These expectations may reinforce negative attitudes, bias, and discrimination towards people who display expressions of gender variance or non-conformity or whose gender identity is incongruent with their birth sex. To create that safer place for our youth, we must all be part of creating the change we want to see in the the world. EDGY is your opportunity to be part of that process by imparting your knowledge, sharing your experiences, and opening your hearts and minds to others.
