Safe Zone Ally Workshop: LGBTQIA 101
April 7, 2016 (Uptown Campus: LBC 210)
April 11, 2016 (Downtown Campus: Tidewater Building)
During this two-hour training, designed for all Tulane students, staff, and faculty, participants will gain introductory knowledge about how they can be an effective ally to LGBTIQA-identified individuals and those questioning their sexuality. Once familiar with the various LGBTIQA resources available on campus, you will be given an Ally sticker to place in your office or dorm so that students, faculty and staff know that you are part of a campus-wide network that supports LGBTIQA-identified individuals. Sponsored by the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD).

Tulane University Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity
The mission of the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD) is to work with all members of Tulane University to foster a climate of respect, understanding and appreciation for diverse genders, sexualities, cultures, and histories; to encourage critical thinking about gender and sexuality; to provide support and leadership development for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, (LGBTIQA) and gender non-conforming (GNC); and, to ensure an open and affirming learning environment, free of homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, sexism, and other forms of gender- and sex-based bias and discrimination. OGSD works closely with the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) to provide educational, social, and cultural opportunities that address the ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with race, ethnicity, class, nationality, dis/ability, and religious identifications.
