UNH SAFE ZONES PROGRAM OPTIONS FOR STUDENT GROUPS:
PLEASE SELECT ONE PROGRAM OPTION BELOW:
Being “Out” as LGBTQ & Allies: Identities & Experiences
Timeframe: 1 – 1.5 hrs This program features a panel of UNH LGBTQA+ students followed by an interactive Q & A discussion. LGBTQA+ students will share how they identify within the LGBTQ and Ally spectrum, personal experiences with coming out and reactions from friends and family, being LGBTQA at UNH, personal impact of homophobic and transphobic bias incidents, tips for allies, and beyond. This is an informal opportunity for the students in your group to ask any questions and hear open and honest responses.
The Power of Words: The Power of Allies
Timeframe: 1 – 1.5 hrs | This program engages students in scenarios that spark discussion about ways to be an ally. This program focuses on bias incidents that students may encounter and the intention, perception, and impact of language, comments, and behaviors. Students will have the opportunity to learn about specific scenario examples of homophobic and transphobic bias incidents and discuss bystander responsibility, including ways to respond as an ally. NOTE: This program can be very specifically "tailored" to the scenarios that fit the demographics or focus of your student organization (i.e. sororities, fraternities, multicultural orgs, etc).
Religion & LGBTQ & Ally Perspectives
Timeframe: 1 – 1.5 hrs | This program features film clips that spark discussion, and focuses on a variety of religions, and highlights a variety of perspectives on homosexuality, LGBTQA people, experiences of inclusion and exclusion, what allies are doing within religious communities, and beyond.
Gender & Transgender Identities, & Transphobic Bias
Timeframe: 1 – 1.5 hrs | This program engages students in interactive activities and scenarios, and may feature film clips if equipment is available. Students will have the chance to consider their own identities of sex, gender identity, gender expression, and gender socialization. Students will gain an understanding of the bias incidents that transgender and gender non-conforming students may experience, and the assumptions, perceptions, or stereotypes that people may make based on gender expression. As we consider specific scenarios of transphobic bias incidents that could and have happened at UNH, students will discuss ways to respond and be an ally.
Beyond Gay... "LGBTQA": what does it all mean?
Timeframe: 1 – 1.5 hrs | This program engages students in interactive activities that spark discussion about the wide variety of LGBTQA terms, why people identify their gender identity, gender expression, and sexual identity the way they do, the fluidity and intersection of identities, why identities matter, and how having an understanding of terms and identities is an important aspect of being an ally!
