j approaches the work of creating LGBTQ inclusion from a social justice context.  This is reflected in his thoughtful, gentle approach to training, which creates space for people to question long-held assumptions and unpack their previous understanding of common paradigms. Using participatory exercises and many more questions than answers, j is able to respond to many training needs. For example:

  • Creation and support of Gay Straight Alliances.
  • General LGBTQ cultural competency training for organizations.
  • Trans-specific cultural competency training.
  • 360° training around gender-nonconforming youth (training for teachers and school staff, parents or care providers, health care professionals, and any other relevant individuals).
  • Health-care specific training around sensitivity to LGBTQ people.
  • Health-care specific training with regard to transpeople's particular health and wellness needs.

Other training modules are certainly available, and all of them can be customized to the needs of your school board, university, health practice, or organization. Please contact j for more information.
