Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods

Gender & Sexuality 101

Public Workshops: 2 hour length

Private Workshops: Customizable length

This workshop is about the rainbow alphabet: 2SLGBTQIA+ (2 Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic, Plus).

We cover the various types and spectrum of gender and sexuality, intersecting identities, language, and ways you can be an ally. Time allows for a Q&A.

No prior experience or knowledge is necessary. Our workshops are a comfortable place where you can ask questions even if you don’t know how to frame or ask the questions or if you aren’t sure you know the right words. This is an environment of learning together.
