Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each month we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion.

We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, August 13. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Questions for Discussion:

  1. How did COVID-19 impact your summer internship plans? What do you think you missed since you were unable to be in DC? What have you gained from your virtual intern experience?
     
  2. Do you think that the cancellation or postponement of internships this summer impacted some students more than others? If so, can you explain your thoughts?
     
  3. Before reading this article, had you heard of Pay Our Interns or the #SaveInternships campaign? What do you think about the work that these organizations are doing?
