Deconstructing Homophobia and Transphobia
High rates of HIV infection among men who have sex with men and trans women of color are less likely the result of individual risk behaviors and more likely linked to structural inequalities such as homophobia, transphobia, racism, and poverty.
This training focuses specifically on the impact that homophobia and transphobia have on the provision of prevention and care services as well as on health outcomes. Topics include understanding LGBT history, examining root causes, understanding heterosexual privilege, and the effects of layered stigma. We will work to develop strategies to create more inclusive systems at an organizational level.
This training is appropriate for any organization working with or concerned about the LGBT community.
