Topic: Safe + Affirming Practice with LGBTQ+ Individuals


Presentation Summary: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) individuals may need additional support or considerations when receiving legal services and when accessing systems.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand affirming LGBTQ+ terminology and spectra of gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.


2. Understand the barriers LGBTQ+ individuals face when accessing educational, housing, healthcare and legal systems.


3. Leave with tangible practice opportunities for creating safer and more inclusive spaces and increased allyship.
