LGBTQ 101: Let's Get Busy Talking!
This workshop provides a safe space for discussion and learning about LGBTQ+ identities. Workshop participants will learn terminology, and the different components that make up sexuality (i.e. sex, gender identity, gender expression, and orientation). We will also talk about some issues that often affect LGBTQ+ peers, such as depression, isolation, self-hatred, substance use, homelessness, and suicide. The conversation will close with tips on how to be an ally.
