What does love mean to you?
What do healthy relationships look like to you?
You’ve heard of “red flags” in relationships – indicators that the relationship might be unhealthy – but what about GREEN flags?
At the LGBTCC we often see relationship curricula and messaging around a crisis lens, and while addressing trauma is so important, we wanted to think more transformatively about relationships and the possibilities for accountability and joy in our communities. We developed the Love Means campaign and the image above to provide some alternative messaging around what our relationships often are and could be.
Check out the resources here for more ideas about structuring healthy relationships based on respect, honesty, and communication.
