This training builds upon one’s capacity to provide inclusive environments for the LGBTQ community. Using our natural ally behaviors, we will learn how to establish sustainable change in our communities by being proactive allies, recognizing homophobia in our own lives, and reflecting on our power and privilege.

As a result of this training, participants will:

**Gain familiarity with commonly used terms.

**Understand the developmental needs for those coming out as LGBTQ.

**Engage in dialogue about how to be an effective, proactive ally to the LGBTQ community.

**Receive information on local, regional and national resources about Allyhood and the LGBTQ community.

**Gain context about the relationships between trans and non-binary politics and feminist politics.

**Learn how attacks on women’s reproductive healthcare hurt the transgender community.

**Leave with a toolkit of how to make their spaces more inclusive of a variety of gender identities and expressions.
