Event

McLennan Library Building Room MS-74, 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

An interactive workshop for faculty, staff and graduate students, this session provides a concise introduction to sexual and gender diversity. Through case studies and discussion, participants will gain an understanding of the main concepts and language related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. They will also learn to recognize some of the stereotypes and systemic barriers faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in the McGill Community and in Montreal, and how to act as agents of change to create spaces welcoming and inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.
