What the +?: Understanding and Supporting Expansive LGBTQ+ Identities
Lesbian. Gay. Bisexual. Transgender. Queer. Simple, right? Not for everyone. As conversations about sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression evolve and individuals feel empowered to own less commonly understood identities it can create challenges for even the most well-intentioned ally. That’s why education around what it means to hold often ignored, less visible, identities that make up “the plus'' is so important. Join us to learn more about terminology that may be new for some (as well as terms and comments to avoid), how to demonstrate allyship to less visible communities, and creating spaces that are more inclusive for individuals with identities that commonly make up “the plus” in LGBTQ+.
