LGBT 101 for Parents: Gender, Sexuality, Pronouns and Other LGBT Stuff!

Thursday, January 21, 7:00P

The LGBT Network’s “LGBT 101/Anti-Bullying Program” is a professional yet fun and interactive educational workshop designed to increase understanding as a tool to decrease the bullying of LGBT and other youth in schools.  Our workshop uses activities and ongoing dialogue and Q&A to facilitate conversations and foster understanding.   The program covers the topics of sexual orientation, gender identity, and experiences of LGBT people.  The program also provides definitions and understanding of terms such as non-binary, pronouns, gender fluid, and heterosexism/cissexism.  Statistics about the bullying, verbal and physical harassment, and violence committed against LGBT youth are used to illuminate the need to stop bullying.
