Being an Ally

Here in the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity, we believe that allyship is an adjective and a verb. To be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, there should be some action involved. This could come in the form of attending educational workshops or continuing to stay abreast of issues affecting the community. 

The Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity offers the following workshops for Tulane students, faculty, and staff. Join our Orgsync page or like us on Facebook to hear about upcoming workshop dates. 

LGBTQ+ 101 Ally Workshop

During this two-hour training, designed for all Tulane students, staff, and faculty, participants will gain introductory knowledge about how they can be an effective ally to LGBTQ+-identified individuals and those questioning their sexuality.  Once familiar with the various LGBTQ+ resources available on campus, you will be given an Ally sticker to place in your office or residence hall so that students, faculty and staff know that you are part of a campus-wide network that supports LGBTQ+-identified individuals. All workshops are free.

Transgender 101 Ally Workshop

This 2-hour workshop for faculty, students, and staff answers some of the most common questions about transgender issues. Participants will gain introductory knowledge about how they can be an effective ally to transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and genderqueer-identified individuals, as well as those developing or questioning their gender identity. All workshops are free.
