Trans, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer – have you heard these words before but felt too nervous about asking ‘what does that mean?’ or unsure where to get a clear explanation?

In this workshop we'll go into detail about trans status, gender identities and expression and inclusive language including the use of pronouns and titles. You’ll gain an insight into legislation relating to gender, name changes and some of the challenges experienced by trans and nonbinary people. This workshop is particularly useful those wanting to support a trans or non-binary colleague or upskill their knowledge for a professional context.

Asking questions can also feel really daunting – especially if you don’t know the best language to use or if you’re worried about making a mistake. We will also explore how to confidently ask someone’s pronouns and what to do if you make a mistake. You’ll also learn how to identify homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and what you can do to challenge it.

This session will be delivered online by LGBT Foundation, a leading LGBTQ+ charity, on behalf of Lambeth Council and LGBT HERO. Links to the online session will be distributed closer to the event date.

Anyone who works directly with residents and local people within the borough are encouraged to attend – whether that’s the council, a service provider or a local business. Lambeth has the highest LGBTQ+ population of any borough in the UK, and this workshop will provide vital knowledge and confidence for anyone to help make Lambeth a more welcoming, inclusive space for trans and non-binary people.

The workshop begins at 1:30pm, and finishes at 4:00pm, with a break in-between.

If you have any questions about the workshop and whether it's right for you, then please send an email to justin.m-jones@lgbthero.org.uk.
