LGBTT* Awareness Workshops

The LGBTT* Initiative provides educational opportunities and resources to build communication, understanding and respect for diversity throughout the College.

Our LGBTT* Awareness Workshops offer an opportunity to students to broaden their understanding of sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression, as well as learn how to identify discriminatory assumptions from a personal, social and cultural framework.

Some of the learning components included in the workshop are:

  • LGBTT* definitions, terminology, culture and history
  • Differences and intersections between sex, gender and sexual orientation
  • Impacts of LGBTT* myths and stereotypes
  • Homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and heterosexism
  • Issues and barriers faced by LGBTT* individuals
  • Tools, strategies, and recommendations for affirming change
