The LGBTQ Allies Workshop hopes to educate students, staff, and faculty about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex, and ally (LGBTQQIA) issues and create a more inclusive USF community.
The LGBTQ Allies Workshop is a 3 hour program open to all USF students, staff, and faculty where participants will:
- Have a supportive space to learn more about the issues faced by the LGBTQQIA community
- Develop skills to confront homophobia
- Become a part of the USF Allies network and create a more inclusive campus community
- Learn about the LGBTQQIA resources at USF and in the community
The Allies committee is dedicated to providing the opportunity to the entire campus to participate in dialogue around LGBTQ issues in a safe environment. In Allies I you will learn basic knowledge and language around LGBTQ issues. In Allies II you will learn skills around LGBTQ allyship, and Allies III workshops are built around specific issues affecting the LGBTQ Community.
