Developing Trans Inclusive Prevention Curricula
Prevention Peer Network
This webinar was be held on January 20, 2022
What does a non-cisnormative curriculum look like?
How do we reimagine our prevention workshops to center transgender, nonbinary, and agender folks while adapting them to be relevant to cisgender straight people?
In this workshop we will showcase what an LGBTQIA+ specific curriculum could be and offer strategies for integrating it into all prevention content. Participants will engage in large group discussion as well as small group breakout rooms. Please come prepared to participate as we build an inclusive movement!
We will not be covering LGBTQIA+ 101; please be familiar with basic concepts related to queer, transgender, nonbinary, and agender communities.
