LGBTQ+ Introduction In-Person

Be introduced to the LGBTQ+ community and enhance your confidence in respectful interactions.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Audience: Everyone (18 years and over)


We all encounter members of the LGBTQ+ community in our daily lives – whether it be friends, family members, co-workers, customers, clients, service providers and more. Learning some basics about the LGBTQ+ community can help you to feel more confident in these interactions.

This training is designed to improve your fundamental knowledge and understanding of LGBTQ+ people and communities, addressing common questions including:

  • What do LGBTQ+ and different terms for gender and sexuality mean?
  • What should I know about the trans community?
  • Why is inclusion important?
  • What are some ways I can be an ally?

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.
