SpeakOUT! - Confronting Homophobia|
By Dan McCartney
Speak OUT is a program run out of the Wellness Centre dealing with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered issues. This program brings together LGBTQ students and allies in educating and confronting homophobia on campus through awareness programming to help make our campus a positive space. Speak OUT involves student facilitators leading workshops to encourage participants to think critically about homophobia and heterosexism. The Speak OUT workshop helps to challenge negative assumptions about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered individuals and covers strategies to prevent homophobic harassment.
