Workshop Session #1
9AM - 10AM -
We all mess up. We all say the “wrong” thing. This training will give you the top 20 things never to say to an LGBTQ+ person – and tell you WHY, and even answer your burning questions along the way. By the end of this training, attendees should be able to:
- Identify questions that may be offensive to LGBTQ+ people
- Understand why these questions may be offensive
- Better understand the LGBTQ+ community through an exploration of these questions.
