D.E.A.C. (Developing Empowering and Affirming Communities) Allies is a workshop series designed to build participants' knowledge and skills through a scaffolded learning approach. Workshops are designed to deepen knowledge around topics of sexual orientation and gender, and to equip participants with skills for building intentionally inclusive communities that welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
The Gender Binary and Beyond is the second workshop in the core trio and centers on gender, including gender identity, gender expression, and analyzing the myriad ways individuals may experience gender. Participants will develop skills for ensuring spaces and practices are inclusive for people of all genders.
The core trio of D.E.A.C. Allies workshops (LGBTQ+ 101, The Gender Binary and Beyond, and Skill Development + Practice) build upon one another; however, there is no requirement to take each of the workshops or to take them in order. If you are new to conversations about gender identity and sexual orientation, we recommend starting with LGBTQ+ 101. If you have questions about the sequencing of the workshops or where to begin, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
