S.A.F.E. Zone to host advanced class: Biological Sex and Intersex Identities

Submitted by Brandon Haddock

S.A.F.E. Zone, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites you to participate in the advanced workshop, Biological Sex and Intersex Diversity, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 2, via Zoom.

Register for the March 2 advanced S.A.F.E. Zone class.

Learning and understanding the foundations of biological sex, intersex diversity and gender identity enables us to promote authentic allyship. Authentic allyship is evident by providing visible support and in-depth knowledge of issues and language related to biological sex diversity. Development of more in-depth skills in reaching students in need is essential in helping individuals of historically excluded and erased identities to feel affirmed and welcomed in majority identity spaces. By fulfilling the role of an authentic ally, individuals can recognize that they are not alone, and it models for other students that their classmates are their peers have differing biological sex characteristics worthy of respect and acceptance.

S.A.F.E. Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus. S.A.F.E. Zone creates educational opportunities to learn more about comprehensive and ever-evolving efforts to fit the needs of current K-State community members. S.A.F.E. 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.
