This workshop will discuss the needs of children and young people of all ages, and will be relevant to all school settings.It will provide evidence that you can use to inform policy in your school setting, approaches to use when working directly with young people who may be at risk of homophobia or transphobia, and ideas to integrate into your teaching practise.

Presenters and guests:

  • Penny Spalding (QTU Women’s Officer)
  • Gianna Parmesan (TRUE / Safe Schools Queensland)

Participants should be able to:

  • Identify key evidence on the sexuality of young people in Australia and the experiences and needs of transgender young people;
  • Broadly understand the elements of sexualities and gender diversity;
  • Explain the needs of same sex attracted, gender diverse and intersex students in schools;
