Wear It Purple Day: Introduction to Supporting LGBTIQA+ Youth | Minus18

August 23 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Join the Minus18 Education Team for a live-streamed professional development webinar in the lead-up to Wear It Purple Day!

The last Friday of August is Wear it Purple Day – a day dedicated to supporting and celebrating LGBTQIA+ youth. To coincide with Wear it Purple Day, Minus18 have developed a virtual training event to equip the whole community with the knowledge needed to support LGBTQIA+ young people and champion inclusion.

Whether you’re looking to be an inclusive colleague, teacher, youth worker, service provider, workplace or even parent or family member, this in-depth training will equip you with the LGBTQIA+ knowledge you need.

The training will cover:

  • An overview refresher on the differences between sex, gender and sexuality.
  • Evidence based barriers LGBTQIA+ young people face.
  • Pronouns – what are they and why are they important?
  • How to apply inclusive language and create an inclusive culture.
  • Practical tools and tips to support LGBTQIA+ young people.
  • LGBTQIA+ lived-experiences via our experienced workshop presenters.
  • Dedicated Q&A time with the presenters
