Here and Now is a one-day practical workshop for building confidence in working with people of diverse genders, diverse sexualities and/or intersex status. This includes but is not limited to people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans* / Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual etc, (LGBTIQA+).

Here and Now helps you explore how better practice principles can make a difference for you, your organisation, service or school when working with LGBTIQA+ people, including young people.

It introduces the latest research and thinking around inclusive practice as well as strategies to challenge homophobia, transphobia and heteronormativity so you can make a real difference for your students, colleagues and clients, starting right here, right now.

Here and Now will assist participants to:

  • Unpack the LGBTIQA+ acronym and the differences between gender identity, sexual orientation, and intersex status
  • Recognise ways people who are LGBTIQA+ experience marginalisation and its impact on their health and wellbeing
  • Identify and proactively challenge low-level social violence including cisgenderism, heterosexism, heteronormativity, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, intersexphobia and microaggressions.
  • Identify strategies for building equity and cultural appropriateness into their work practices
  • Identify resources and services to use with clients and workers
  • Develop a plan to transform learnings into action
