SafeZone Descriptions

SafeZones are scheduled throughout the semester and are also available by request.  Check out the SafeZone descriptions below to see which ones interest you most:


LGBT 101 ~
Our original SafeZone that is most often requested. We cover basics of LGBT identities, the difference between sex, gender, and sexuality orientation, and ways to be a good ally (starting September 1, 2014, LGBT 101 will be 3 hours in response to feedback requesting more time for discussion).

Trans* & Gender Variant  Identities ~ In this workshop you will learn a brief history of the trans* movement in the United States, uncover personal biases, and learn how to be an ally to trans and gender variant people (3 hours).

Bisexual & Pansexual Identities ~
In this workshop you will learn a brief history of the bi and pansexual movement in the United States, uncover personal biases, and learn how to be an ally to bisexual and pansexual people (2 hours).

Religion and Sexuality ~
This workshop will help participants better understand the intersections of faith/religion, sexuality, and gender by discussing how religious communities engage (or don't engage) gender and orientation.  Also, participants will explore how communities of faith can serve as allies to the LGBT and queer communities.  The workshop offers a starting point for the deeper engagement of the complex yet rich dynamics of intersecting faith and sexuality (2 hours).

Allyship and Suicide Awareness
~ A presentation looking at mental health challenges experienced by LGBT individuals and how clinical work can be inclusive of LGBT identities (2 hours).

SafeZone for Healthcare Professionals ~
Our LGBT 101 SafeZone adapted for healthcare and medical settings (2-3 hours).
