Event description
A workshop about the concepts of coming out, outing, safety issues, and how they interact with cultural and other contexts for newcomers

About this event

Help us kick off Pride Week 2021(August 27th to September 6th) by joining this workshop, which teaches concepts about coming out, outing, safety issues, and how they interact with cultural and other contexts for newcomers to Canada. It gives specific ways to discuss coming out within a cultural context and relates openness to sexual orientation or gender identity to privilege, culture, religion, and resiliency. It refers to UNHCR Guidelines for working with LGBTQ+ refugees and the use of interview skills to discuss coming out scenarios

Registrants will receive all materials and an invitation to the online platform via email prior to the workshop date.

Contact LGBTQ+ Educator and Coordinator, Michael Cacace at m.cacace@centrefornewcomers.ca for questions, or to schedule a private training for your organization or business.
