Beyond Gay & Straight: An Intro to Understanding Bisexual & Asexual Experiences – When creating affirming church spaces, church leaders often focus their attention on creating spaces where gay/lesbian and straight believers can coexist. This approach fails to recognize that the experiences and needs of bisexual+ and asexual spectrum Christians differ from those of gay or straight believers. This conversation-heavy session aims to help church members better understand the unique needs of members of the bi+ and ace communities and think about ways to make their churches more welcoming to people in these communities. Intended audience: members of SGL/LGBTQ+ affirming churches, modifiable for educators on request.

Bisexual+ History Highlights – Using Celebrate Bisexuality Day (aka Bisexual Visibility Day) as a grounding point, this interactive session offers a brief look at historical contributions of bisexual+ activists to the LGBTQ+ community as a whole and key moments in the development of a national bisexual+ community from the 1960s-1990s. Intended audience: LGBTQ+ groups (high school, college, or older adult) and conferences.

LGBTQ+ Competent School Counseling – Research suggests that many school counselors do not feel adequately prepared to meet the needs of their LGBTQ+ students. This presentation attempts to bridge some of the lack in skills and knowledge by providing information about the basics of sexuality and gender, the experiences of LGBTQ+ students as viewed through an intersectional lens, and resources for professional development and curriculum creation. Intended audience: pre-service school counselors.

“Am I Welcome Here?”: Language, Inclusion, & the Gender Triangle – Using GLSEN & InterACT’s Gender Triangle as a frame, this example-heavy session provides an introduction to gender inclusive language and an opportunity for participants to discuss best practices when speaking to or about people of diverse genders. Intended audience: members of SGL/LGBTQ+ affirming churches, modifiable for educators on request.
