Walk a mile in the shoes of a queer person
“When did you choose to be gay?” “I have a gay friend you should totally date them!” “So, who is the man in the relationship?”
These are some common questions and assumptions people often make about people on the LGBTIQ+ spectrum.
Now, let’s turn the tables. Imagine if someone asked these same questions to a straight person:
“When did you decide to become straight?” “It’s just a phase, you’ll get over it soon” “Heterosexuality is unnatural and a sin in the eyes of God” “I have a straight friend, maybe you know them?”
These questions sound odd, insensitive, and invasive right?
In this course, you get a glimpse of the abuse and discrimination a queer person faces simply for expressing their gender identity and sexual orientation.
The course in a nutshell:
- The harmful effects of stereotyping LGBTIQ+ people and not respecting their privacy.
- How safe are LGBTIQ+ people public spaces.
- Navigate through hypothetical situations as a queer person.
- A guided fantasy- homonormative world where straight people are discriminated against and abused.
- Understand. depression, self-harm tendencies and suicidal rates in LGBTIQ+ youth.
