Event Details

In this workshop, participants will explore the gender binary and common microaggressions experienced by members of the LGBTQ community. Participants will view Barbara J. Diamond’s film What Are You?, which features LGBTQ people in Portland, Oregon who describe their experiences with microaggressions based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Participants will engage in facilitated discussion and brainstorming on reducing bias against LGBTQ people in their workplaces, communities, and personal lives. See the film trailer here.

The second half of the workshop will explore disability identity as celebratory rather than stigmatized. Participants will view Zoom In, Barbara J. Diamond’s documentary featuring people with mental health and physical disabilities in the Pacific Northwest. The film’s contributors reflect on their development of positive disability identity and encounters with microaggressions. Participants will emerge with the fundamentals of disability justice and tools to avoid and correct ableist microaggressions.  The film trailer is here.
