Members of the LGBTQIA+ community experience sexual assault in unique ways, from hate crimes to intimate partner violence. In this week's #EngageUplift, Jackson Bird talks about issues for queer survivors, as well as finding support as a survivor in queer spaces.

Engage by Uplift tackles the difficult issues surrounding sexual abuse that the YouTube and online communities face. We're starting real talk for real change.

Each week, our host Kat Lazo discusses abuse and how it manifests in virtual spaces. Watch and collaborate with us through weekly calls to action, and join in with some of your favorite YouTubers as they consider the issues in round table discussions.
