In this intersectional workshop for LGBTQIA+ and non-LGBTQIA+ identified people, you will learn and practice a series of vocabulary tools for your support of LGBTQIA+ justice in your classrooms, offices, and conversations. You will learn and practice describing the differences between assigned sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation; you will reflect on your own identities. You will practice identifying – and enacting bystander intervention in – microaggressions around gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation. And you will set your intention for inclusive language (including pronouns) for your communities. You will also learn about existing and necessary campus resources for LGBTQIA+ people. Attend this workshop on its own or continue on to Practicing Allyship (Ally Toolkit Part 2) with the option to join Allies in Action. Participants who complete both Ally Toolkit workshops 1 & 2 (Affirming LGBTQIA+ People: Interpersonal Allyship & Affirming LGBTQIA+ People: Organizational Allyship) and sign a GSC Allyship Pledge will receive a GSC Ally Card they can post in their space and will have the opportunity to have their name listed on our Allies in Action website to visibly show their support. Led by Quynh-Huong Nguyen, the Assistant Director of the Gender and Sexuality Center, this two hour presentation will be held in RRH 3.414 with lunch provided from 12:30pm – 1pm and the workshop following from 1pm – 3pm.

You will learn about and practice identifying how multiple systems of oppression (including racism, ableism, classism, and sexism) overlap with heterosexism and cisgenderism on our campus. You will reflect on your own social identities, your relationship with systems of oppression, and your roles in interrupting oppression to make campus safer and more welcoming for all LGBTQIA+ communities. At the end of this workshop, you will have the opportunity to sign the Ally Program Pledge and receive the Ally Card.
