About the course
Are you looking to learn about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) and other (+) identities?
While there are tons of resources and passive educational information available, sometimes you might find information that is hard to understand, has lots of key terms that go undefined, or, honestly, is misleading.
In Gender Inclusivity, A Brave Space, we explore the concepts of sexuality and gender. The course "queers" the concepts of sexuality, expression, and identity by discussing how society communicates what is "acceptable" behavior, and the course calls out ways to challenge those gendered behaviors to create positive, accepting communities. The course is also fun! With videos, readings, and interactive components, we're ready for you to engage and leave the course feeling as sense of understanding of the LBGTQ+ community and how you can contribute to their sense of belonging.
