Workshop topics include:
*Someone I love is Gay

*Understanding the underlying gender issues of homophobia and responding to anti-gay marriage
*Getting it Straight; what the research states about the LGBT community and outreach tips that
teachers/counselors/pastors/family members or friends should know
