International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBiT), held annually on May 17th since 2005, is the largest LGBT+ solidarity event in the world with over 1,000 events taking place in more than 120 countries worldwide. It marks the day in 1990 when the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.

In order to mark this important date, the LGBT+ Staff Network are pleased to present training by transgender activist Kit Heyam on trans inclusion in the workplace, taking place on Wednesday 16th May, 12.30 - 1.45pm, in Keir Hardie 230. This training will explore:

The basics of trans identities
Sex and gender
Common terminology
Supporting trans students and staff
How to show your trans inclusivity
Q&A session

In order to promote an inclusive working environment it is vital for all staff to develop a better understanding of trans issues and intersectional experiences in the workplace and beyond, and this is an excellent professional development opportunity.

This free event is open to all staff, students and visitors.

Attendees are welcome to submit anonymous questions in advance, if there are any questions they would like answered but are too nervous to ask in person. Kit will answer these questions during the session, and will also give attendees an opportunity to ask questions in person. Please submit your question here:
