About this Event

Research shows that people are happier and more productive in an environment in which they feel they can be themselves without fear of harassment or abuse and although society as a whole is becoming more tolerant of the diversity of sexual orientations, homophobia is still ingrained in many institutions and communities. This continues to have an extremely negative affect on the lives of LGBT people.

This training explores sexuality and gender and provides participants with deeper knowledge and skills around the topic in order to effectively tackle issues in their host organizations. We look at key terms and definitions with regards to the wide variety of genders and look at how the language we use when speaking about people can have huge impact for good or bad. We discuss how to better support LGBTQ+ young people and provide helpful strategies that you can incorporate into your own organization.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss attitudes to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people.

  • Discuss stereotypes, judgments and assumptions around sexuality

  • Describe LGBTQ+ issues affecting young people and identify ways of supporting the young people you work with around these issues.

  • Define and understand terminology

  • Demonstrate practical skills to support a young person with a disclosure

  • Describe how to develop professional practice to ensure LGBT inclusivity within SRE work with young people

  • Identify practical ways to challenge homophobia in a youth setting.
