TIME: 1-2 hours
For over 40 years this presentation has been the cornerstone of our education and outreach. The presentation provides participants with a general understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) identities. Trained Speakers Bureau members will share their personal coming out stories. They will discuss basic terms and vocabulary, including the distinction between sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. This format encourages dialogue and provides ample time for participants to ask questions and get honest answers. This presentation can be run with two presenters for a smaller classroom setting or as a panel presentation for a larger assembly. Perfect for honest conversations with middle and high school students, parents, teachers, college campuses, healthcare providers, faith communities, etc.
