Webinar: LGBTQ+ 101: Understanding Gender Basics and Sexual Orientation
March 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The identities, terms, and concepts associated with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) communities are ever changing and sometimes confusing. Foundational knowledge about gender identity and sexual orientation is important for culturally-appropriate service provision and response with LGBTQ+ individuals, who disproportionately experience violence in today’s culture. This 1.5-hour introductory level webinar will explain LGBTQ+ communities in an easily understood manner, especially around different sexual orientations and genders. Participants will have tangible information to increase appropriate outreach and interaction with people of diverse gender and sexual identities.
