In this two-hour LGBTQIA+ Fundamentals training participants will explore the basics of queer and trans identity via the four elements of gender and sexuality: assigned sex, gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. These concepts apply to everyone, LGBTQIA+ or not, and by working through these concepts participants will learn the importance of breaking past the binary, not making assumptions about others' identities, and that the experience of gender and sexuality is incredibly varied from person to person. Participants will also gain hands-on skills to best support queer and trans folks through using they/them pronouns in conversation, de-gendering everyday language, and working through case scenarios to practice skills learned. By the end of LGBTQIA+ Fundamentals, participants will have the knowledge and skills to better support the queer and trans folks in their lives.
