Thanks for your interest in LGBTQA 101!

LGBTQA 101 gives participants an overview of relevant terms and definitions, as well as providing an opportunity to have open discussion around LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and asexual)-related issues.  Interactive and informative, LGBTQA 101 is designed to be fun and engaging, all while challenging participants to think critically and expand their own understanding of these topics.  All individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or current level of LGBTQA-based knowledge, are welcome to attend.

LGBTQA 101 is a part of the LGBTQA Resource Center's Training program, and is a pre-requisite to participation in Safe Zone Training.

 The purpose of LGBTQA 101:

  • To educate!
  • Create a campus community that is welcoming and affirming of the LGBTQA community and their allies

How do I attend a training?

Training dates will be scheduled periodically throughout the academic year.  However, you may also request to have LGBTQA 101 brought to your organization, office, residence hall, or department on campus.

Please RSVP to whichever training you're hoping to attend!

To request a training...

  • Send a email to with the date and time that you prefer, giving us at least two weeks notice. We will then coordinate with our trainers to present for you. If we have any trouble covering the date and time you request, we will ask you for other options.
  • Once trainers have been selected, we will email you to let you know.  We will bring all the materials needed, including a laptop and projector.  We just need you to provide the screen, or a decent bit of blank wall.
  • Remember to book a space!  Ideally, something that allows participants to see each other easily is preferred.
  • The training is two hours long, so it might not fit exactly within a standard staff meeting.
  • Given the time and effort that goes into presenting a training, we would request that you guarentee an attendance of no less that ten people for a presentation.  If your own group is too small to accomodate that, consider working with another group to find a time that works for you all.
  • Similarly, considering the need for conversation, we would prefer to keep the groups to less than 30 people per session, if possible.
