HSABC & BCPRC: Anti-Oppression Workshop Series - Queer Competency Training
December 7, 2021, 12:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Homelessness Services Association of BC and BC Poverty Reduction Coalition are proud to present a five workshop series on Anti-Oppression with generous funding from the City of Vancouver. Through these workshops, we will explore the concepts of anti-oppression and the intersections that weave throughout the landscape. We aim to create a more inclusive and less oppressive world through education, discussion, and exploration.
This training session is being offered again on Dec 14 (Same Content), 2021 please sign up for only one, not both!!
Workshop 5: Queer Competency Training with Qmuinty
In this workshop lead by Qmunity's education and training specialist Rana Nu, we will listen, learn and discuss:
- LGBTQ2SAI+ terminology and definitions
- Overview and reflection on the gender binary and spectrum models, to bring to light how we understand and talk about gender and sexuality as a society (media, pop culture, in school or health systems, etc.), and how this rigid understanding can be limiting and exclusionary
- Exercise on gendered language, including pronouns, respectfully asking people their pronouns, and how often we assign someone a gender-based on the assumption.
- Provide QMUNITY referrals to services and community contacts/referrals when appropriate.
