RA Health Programming Guide - LGBTIQ Topics
If you and your residents are
interested in LGBTIQ topics, here are some materials to get you started. You
might consider doing this workshop as part of a series with the Healthy
Relationships and/or Sexual Health modules, or it can stand on its own!
At the conclusion of the course, participants
will be able to:
heterosexism and understand how it plays out in society
their understanding of several other key LGBTQ terms, including the gender
about the process of coming out from the perspectives of both the individual
and the recipient

This workshop is on a sensitive topic, so become
comfortable with the information yourself before facilitating it. Have a sense
of who is in your audience and be conscientious of what any person might be
feeling during this workshop, regardless of their sexuality or gender identity.
Acknowledge that some people may feel uncomfortable, but still encourage open,
respectful discussion. If you or your residents are interested in learning more
about this topic or learning how to be an ally, check out the Safe Zone
training at the LGBTQ Center.
If you choose to show a (part of
a) video, preview the film so you are familiar with it and decide which
sections you want the discussion to focus on afterward.
workshop is intended to last 30-120
minutes, depending on the combination of activities you choose to include.
- The presentation includes opportunities for discussion. With discussion, it could take 20-30
mins, but without or with minimal discussion it should take 15 mins.
discussion questions on heterosexism and the gender binary from the
presentation are available and expanded as individual activities. You could
choose to use the presentation notes as a guide for your facilitation of a
discussion-based workshop instead of using the PowerPoint.
activities are available to pair with the presentation or discussion.
- There are several videos available about gender,
complete with study guides and discussion questions. You could begin the
workshop with the presentation or a brief introduction to heterosexism and the
gender binary before viewing (a part of) a video and discussing it afterward.
Do the activities that will best match the interests,
comfort level, and available time of you and your residents. Also check out the LGBTIQ Resource Guide for more info.
