Safe Zone, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites you to participate in the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop, "Addressing Stigma in Queer Sex and Relationships," from 10-11 a.m. Friday, July 9, via Zoom.

In partnership with the Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education, or CARE, Safe Zone is hosting an advanced workshop discussing stigmas associated with queer sex and relationships.

Specifically, the content will focus on safe sex and healthy sexuality; how queer sex education is erased and ignored; perceived hypersexuality of queer community; and allyship. Participants must have already completed Safe Zone's Introductory Workshop to attend.

Register here for the July 9 Advanced Safe Zone Workshop.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. The architects of Safe Zone created educational opportunities to teach about discrimination around sexual orientation and other minoritized identities. The expanded Safe Zone created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Safe Zone Allies acknowledge a variety of backgrounds and identities while teaching about navigating exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns, and sexual violence.
