Course Synopsis:

This LGBTQ+ course raises awareness of the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, asexual, pansexual, intersex, and people of other sexualities in housing and wider society both in the past and today.

By the end of the course, participants will feel confident in their knowledge of sexual orientation, gender identity and LGBTQ+ terminology so that no one is afraid of saying the wrong thing. The course will create greater awareness of the history of LGBTQ+ movement and legislation up to the present day and equip participants to recognise and challenge exclusion and discrimination.
