Safe Space Workshop: Understanding LGBTQ Identities
The Center offers two different LGBTQ specific workshops. They are the Safe Space Workshop and the Trans* 101 workshop. You can also request an LGBTQ presentation at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Safe Space workshop seeks to create a safer and more inclusive campus environment for all members of the campus community by reducing heterosexism, homophobia, and transphobia. The program creates a visible and supportive network of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and ally members of the campus community. Participants are given a Safe Space placard at the end of the program, which identifies them as someone who has a basic knowledge about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity and are able to provide support and referrals to members of the campus community.

Safe Space: LGBTQA Toolkit
This toolkit is filled with resources related to understanding LGBTQA identities, heterosexism, and homophobia. These resources also provide information on how to be an ally and some reflection on privilege and oppression related largely, but not only to LGBTQA identities.
If you have a resource that you think should belong on this guide, please email email@example.com.
You can also check out our Trans 101 Toolkit for even more information related specifically to trans identities and issues.
This guide provides a list of other resources for the AU community on the regulations or accommodations for trans folk on campus as well information on where single user restrooms are and a guide to pronoun usage.
This website provides reports related to a lot of issues surrounding the LGBTQA community including health concerns. This center also looks at intersectionality with other identities including race, class, ethnicity, ability, and age.
