We are delighted to have the Rainbow Project and Here NI deliver a LGB&/T awareness session to our staff and the wider public.
The topics covered in the training will include:
Understanding same-sex attraction and use of appropriate terminology
Understanding gender identity and expression and use of appropriate terminology
Key health inequalities experienced by people who are same-sex attracted
Forms of homophobia, heterosexism and internalised homophobia
Barriers to accessing mainstream statutory service provision
Legislative and social policy context
Tips for improvement of practice
The training will be split into two sessions, the first session will cover Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual. We will then break for coffee and refreshments. The second session will cover Trans awareness.
The awareness session will be informative and will give you a good basis for understanding Sexual Orientation issues and gender identity.
