Live, Online Training: Break Down the Walls: Support Healthy Sexuality for LGBTQ People with I/DD

Gain Skills and Tools to Address Healthy Sexuality for LGBTQ People with I/DD

LGBTQ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have felt invisible during sexuality education classes or when someone is supporting them around the topic of sexuality. They want and need access to support and sexuality education that acknowledges and appreciates their whole selves. Speaking from personal experiences, the presenters will delve deep into issues and barriers that impact LGBTQ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and focus on knowledge and supports that are affirming and liberating to the LGBTQ community. Topics will include human rights, dating, body image, and sexual acts.

This ONLINE training (via video conference) is designed for professionals, self-advocates, and sexuality educators, to better support the LGBTQ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities they work with, care about or teach, either in a one on one or class setting.

Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Reflect on the stories of LGBTQ individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to better offer support
  • Explain LGBTQ terms and concepts in accessible language
  • Respond to difficult situations to support of the rights of LGBTQ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • Provide sexuality education that supports relationships and sexual health for LGBTQ individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (including dating while LGBTQ, gender transition and sex, non-heterosexual sex, etc.)
  • Answer questions related to LGBTQ sex and sexuality
