LGBTQIA+ Discussion Group - Bi but Not Shy!

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(86)
In this ongoing class, we will create a safe space for LGBTQIA+ and specifically bisexual teens to meet each other and have meaningful discussions.

Class experience

I am bisexual and non-binary, and my younger brother is also trans and bi, so I do have experience within the LGBTQ+ community and with talking to bisexual or otherwise LGBTQ+ youth. I was involved in both my middle and high school's GSA (Gender and Sexuality Alliance), and have helped many of my younger friends and peers come to terms with their sexuality, gender identity, or coming out. I have also done research on facilitating a community-based discussion group, both by using Mental Health America's "Support Group Facilitation Guide" and the Bisexual Resource Center's "Growing a Bi+ Community: A Handbook for Facilitators." In terms of specific content, I took a college course on Philosophy of Feminism, which delved into the history of the LGBTQ+ community as well as the struggles we have faced and obstacles we have overcome. In providing the websites and resources that I have linked in the External Resources section, I have read through and watched many of the different educational articles and videos on the websites and hope to utilize these resources further during class meetings by using lesson plans or activities created by these LGBTQ+ organizations. I plan to adapt and continue my research and learning throughout the course to best suit the students' needs and provide additional relevant resources for them to use. Please let me know if there is anything specific I can do that would help your child feel more comfortable so they can have a great class experience!
This class is meant to be a discussion group and community for teens who identify as bisexual, LGBTQ+ or exploring their identity, but anyone and everyone is welcome. We will naturally be discussing topics related to sexuality and the LGBTQ+ community. I will be facilitating each conversation and steering each discussion away from explicit material and towards age-appropriate content. I do ask that if students want to bring up a sensitive topic, they either message me privately about it before class where I will use my discretion, or provide a trigger warning before speaking about it during a meeting. My goal is to create a safe space where everyone feels comfortable and accepted, and we create an environment of respect for each of our peers.
DISCLAIMER: This class is not meant to be group therapy or replace therapy in any way, and should not be used as such.
