Foundations 102: Beyond the Binary
Did you know that 1 out of 4 LGBTQ youth and 1 out of 10 LGBTQ adults are non-binary? Did you know humans have always existed outside of the gender binary? This training explores non-binary specific terminology, cultural context, and best practices to ensure non-binary people are being respected and valued. Expanding beyond the content from the mini webinars of Getting Comfortable with Pronouns and Non-Binary Basics, this training further explores what it means to be non-binary, and the ways in which the world can be uniquely hostile for our non-binary peers. Through activities and group discussion, we will learn the history behind non-binary communities and identities, practice using affirming pronouns, and walk away with a deeper awareness of honoring and respecting gender non-conforming individuals.
Participants will be able to
- accurately define the gender binary
- identify 2-3 positive outcomes associated with using a person’s affirming pronouns
- name 2-3 actions one could take to support non-binary communities
