Here are some comments on a recent training session:

 

What a fantastic training session – so informative. I have learnt so much; your presentation is superb, very engaging. Brilliant course, very well done, thoroughly enjoyed it – have learnt so much, very interesting. Excellent overview of LGBT issue, how the law has changed over time – thank you. Very enlightening and thought provoking – good presenter who kept the interest going – could listen all day, thank you. Inspiring and informative, really well presented. I learned a great deal and have a lot to think about – thank you. Excellent opportunity to reflect on the issues and the need to consider our approach to all users. Absolutely fantastic, lots of detail, shocking facts, very relevant information, thorough and very enjoyable. I have learned so much, so informative and challenging, the LGBT training should be compulsory.

For the last five years, training involving elements of hate crime against LGBT people has been made free by sponsorship from the Police and Crime Commisioner. This also includes how it relates to specific groups of people such as young people experiencing bullying because of their sexual orientation. It is available to organisations which can provide a venue and gather at least 8 people to take part.

 

The training can include some or all of the following elements;

 

  • Getting familiar with what the "words" mean .. and which words not to use

  • Homophobia, biphobia, transphobia: what it is. its frequency and the effects it has

  • Homophobia, biphobia, transphobia in a wider context of general prejudice against minorities

  • Myths and stereotypes

  • Negative laws and recent positive changes in the law.  Your responsibilities under the Equality Act.

  • Coming out: what it means; what it's like to be "stuck in the closet" and what happens when you come out

  • Contentious issues ("The Bible says it's wrong" etc)

  • Supporting victims of LGBT hate crimes; why these crimes are

        under-reported and how reporting can be encouraged

  • Same sex domestic abuse/Male rape

  • Providing support for LGB+T young people and students in our education system
