LGBTQ+ 101

An Introduction to Definitions and Concepts

Why this Training?
  • There is a lack of LGBTQ+ cultural competency of human services providers, including those in the healthcare field.
  • There is an overrepresentation of LGBTQ+ youth in out-of-home placements. This means that proportionally there are more LGBTQ+ young people in foster care, juvenile justice placements, and/or experiencing homelessness than there are in the general public. 
  • Knowingly, or unknowingly, organizations provide services to persons who identify as LGBTQ+. This training will build a foundation of knowledge for future learning and understanding of the LGBTQ+ community.
