LGBTQ/SGL Terminology Work Book

It can sometimes be difficult for a university community to talk about sexual orientation and gender expression identity because it feels uncomfortable, taboo, or because you’re afraid to say the wrong thing. This terminology review is created to assist university personnel and student leaders in learning about the LGBTQ/SGL community.


The LGBTQ/SGL Cultural Competency Training: Definitions & Terminology Workbook will help to lay a framework for positive and productive conversations by facilitating a shared lexicon of terms so everyone knows how to be respectful. By internalizing these definitions, engaging in the vital work of advocacy is made that much easier. WORDS MATTER!
