Item Description

  • This safe zone training is an opportunity to explore LGBTQIA+ inclusive language and practices, which in turn, will help us to identify how MLA and our home institutions can continue to be more safe and inclusive spaces for our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, co-workers, and patrons/users. This session will cover LGBTQIA+ inclusive and affirming terminology, differences between gender and sexuality, and privileges and barriers specifically around gender and sexuality but also in connection to race, class, ability, religion, and other marginalized identities. We will tackle commonly asked and misunderstood questions, work through real-life scenarios, and identify resources for further learning. The facilitators will walk attendees through a carefully planned exploration of LGBTQIA+ identities, terminology, and more via active learning activities, discussion, and reflection.
