  • What should I know about the trans community?
  • Why is inclusion important?
  • What should I know about LGBTQ+ history and relevant current legislation?
  • How do experiences of discrimination impact the health of the LGBTQ+ community?
  • What is the prevalence of substance use in the LGBTQ+ community?
  • How does substance use uniquely affect the LGBTQ+ community?
  • What are some ways I can be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community?
  • How can I be more inclusive in my practice?

Pride Training courses are developed and delivered by LGBTQ+ community members and subject matter experts, and include activities, media, open discussions, and access to a range of useful resources.
