LGBTQ+ Awareness Workshops & Assemblies

For Children & Young People

Our workshops and assemblies for children and young people can be tailored to the needs of any organisation that is looking to educate their young people or students to have a better understanding of issues relating to sexual orientation, gender identity and specifically LGBTQ+ issues and is looking to ensure their organisation is an LGBTQ+ inclusive environment.

Our workshops will explore the issues and challenges that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,Trans, or those who are unsure of their sexual orientation or gender identity, children and young people face, how they are impacted by these, and how best to support them
We will explore ways to make our youth groups, colleges and organisations safer and more LGBT inclusive by exploring ways of identifying and challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
We have two very well established workshops, one that focuses more on sexual orientation and bullying and the other focuses more on gender identity and trans issues.

Benefits and learning outcomes

  • Explore definitions and current language that is used in describing sexual orientations and gender identities.
  • Understanding & challenging stereotypes and myths about LGBTQ+ people
  • Explore the impact of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language & bullying on LGBTQ+ young people’s wellbeing

LGBTQ+ Peer Educators

As part of our LGBT+ youth volunteering programme, we have trained a group of LGBT+ YouthPeer-Educators who are available to support the facilitation of workshops, depending on their availability.  

They speak about their own experiences and issues they faced growing up as LGBTQ+.
