HOW TO BE AN ALLY

Summary:

This strengths-based workshop provides a safe space for groups to ask tricky questions, clarify confusions and make mistakes, while learning practical ways to be (even) better allies to the LGBTIQA+ community.  

After reviewing important language and terminology, groups explore a range of simple, practical and powerful ways that they can support and lift the LGBTIQA+ people in their lives.

Throughout the workshop, attendees take part in a range of interactive exercises, hear firsthand from LGBTIQA+ Australians about their experiences, and walk away with new strategies for creating inclusive environments and relationships.

Our patient and open-minded facilitators encourage attendees to make the most of this unique opportunity by asking the burning questions they may not feel comfortable asking elsewhere.

Outcomes:

  • Solidify basic understanding of the identities represented within the LGBTIQA+ acronym.

  • Develop a deeper understanding of the legal and social landscape for LGBTIQA+ people in Australia.

  • Expand vocabulary and learn how to use language in a more inclusive way.

  • Develop practical strategies and processes for supporting LGBTIQA+ people.

  • Learn about the power of allyship through applicable case studies.

  • Develop strategies to assist others to become better allies.

  • Receive answers to burning questions related to the LGBTIQA+ community.
