Dr. McCready '90 discusses his research on the ways Black gender-expansive youth (BGEY) navigate gender and sexuality norms in schools and communities. His findings highlight the ongoing need for education research and policy analysis and point to promising practices for fostering safe and inclusive environments that promote BGEY’s psychological well-being and academic success.
