LGBTQ+ Etiquette and Common Bloopers

Empowering Ideas Webinar Series

May 12, 2021
12:00 - 12:45 pm

LGBTQ+ terms and identities are constantly changing. It is difficult to keep up. Many people may feel intimidated and can be silenced by the fear that they will accidentally say something that will offend someone.

This interactive and fun workshop helps relieve this anxiety by offering insight and helpful language advice to improve your understanding. Participants will leave with:

  • A list of the most common LGBTQ+ etiquette bloopers
  • Better language suggestions
  • Best-practice communication tips
  • An increased confidence in the ability to have respectful interactions with and about LGBTQ+ people

This workshop will show you how allies can create safer, inclusive, and more equitable spaces with their language choices.
