LGBTQ+ Awareness & How to be an Ally
Introductory session divided into two main components: Queer 101 focuses on LGBTQ+ terminology and language, clarifying terms, and providing a space for discussion about sexual orientation and gender identity. The second portion is an introduction to LGBTQ+ Allyship.

Queer 102
Expanding on the basic terminology presented in Queer 101, delving deeper into the experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals. This session unpacks topics such as passive homophobia, transphobia, passing privilege, and inclusive versus reductive labels, in order to educate allies on some of the lesser discussed realities of the queer experience. Participants will learn to identify their own impact on frequently encountered challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals.

Productive Allyship
It is a complex process that balances privilege, responsibility, and education. Dismantling the misconception of allyship as an "identity" by focusing on the power relationships between allies and marginalized individuals. Participants will learn how to begin the process of identifying, evaluating, and exercising their privilege in order to work in solidarity with LGBTQ+ individuals and other marginalized groups.

Trans Awareness
Expanding and establishing recognition of gender minorities including, but not limited to, transgender, non-binary, and genderqueer identities. Participants will learn how to better support trans students, colleagues, and friends in this interactive workshop, which will also guide participants through the
process of evaluating language and text for trans-inclusivity.

The Birds & The Birds, The Bees & The Bees
Create sex positivity by opening dialogue around consent, boundaries, safer sexual practices, STIs, LGBTQ+ needs in our health care system, and resources.
