The GASP project is Geelong’s safe and inclusive space for young people aged between 12-25.
We work to ensure that the strength and diversity of LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, intersex, transgender, gender diverse, queer, and questioning) young people are valued, celebrated and affirmed. The GASP project offers a range of services for young people, education providers, organisations, and the wider community.
On Tuesday 15th of May the City of Greater Geelong and GASP, will present an information session focusing on inclusive practices to assist in creating safe and welcoming learning spaces for LGBTIQA+ students.
The session will cover:
- The difference between sex, gender and sexuality
- Some of the words same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people use to identify themselves, and what they mean.
- Barriers that same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people experience, particularly in schools – what forms homophobia and transphobia can take and the impacts they have.
- How schools can create and maintain a safe and supportive learning environment
Suitable for teachers, parents and business and operations staff.
