Training Topics

Gender Expression

Gender Expression is often the most visible aspect of people's lives. We cover gender expression's roles in all of our lives and look at the influences it has on us on a daily basis.

Gender Identity

Gender identity describes everyone's own, internal understanding of what their gender is. For some people, this identity matches their biological bodies; for others, it doesn't. We explore what this means for individuals and society.

Training Topics

Sexual Orientation

In this part of the training, we discuss the different types of attractions that human beings experience towards each other and why this attraction is not dependent on our personal gender identity or expression.

Advice and Support for Allies

Allies are those who do not identify in the LGBTQ community. However, they are an enormous part of who we are and help us to exist with their support. In this section of the training, we work to help allies navigate pronouns, relationships (business and personal) and aid with how organizations can make themselves open and prepared to accept LGBTQ+ people as employees, clients and customers.
