Safer Spaces Workshops: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (Winter 2018)


McLennan Library Building Room MS 74, 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

This workshop is based on the Safe Space workshop first designed and implemented by the McGill Equity Subcommittee on Queer People. Participants in this workshop may choose to participate in our Safer Spaces Allies program.


An interactive workshop for faculty, staff and graduate students, this session provides a concise introduction to sexual and gender diversity. Through case studies and discussion, participants will gain an understanding of the main concepts and language related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. They will also learn to recognize some of the stereotypes and systemic barriers faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in the McGill Community and in Montreal, and how to act as agents of change to create spaces welcoming and inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.
