POSITIVELY

POSITIVELY, the Origami booklet with words to inspire a positive view and well-being.  We begin with the simple question: What’s positive about your LGBTQIA+2S*NB identity?  Read the research-based, adapted poem of words representing the responses of thousands who have responded to this query.  Share your response, and share this booklet with others.  Let’s cultivate well-being and positive identities (including our allies and families)!

Instructions:  This pdf is a regular 8.5×11 size page folded into 8 panels.  You will see the top panels appear up-side down.  That’s where the Origami paper folding comes in.  (a) First, print the page in Landscape mode. (b) Then, search online for instructions for “instructions for folding origami booklet” (there are a lot of videos and pictures to explain).  This is part of the fun of creating your own experience in this project.  And you can decorate!  (c) Read and reflect!  Reading for inspiration is important and thought-provoking – this is time and space to reflect on our strengths, growth, relationships, and resources.  (d) Share!  Sharing is part of spreading a message of caring for everyone in our communities.  Share the link; or print or copy and send the booklet to someone; or leave it for someone to find; or hand it to someone with a message of warmth .  Any way we can share the message supports our communities.
