Interested in learning more about LGBTQ issues and becoming part of an ally network for LGBTQ students at MSU? The Safe Zone program offers trainings each semester to help educate our community and promote an inclusive campus environment. Safe Zone is a program that appears on campuses across the nation to build awareness and support of LGBTQIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and questioning) individuals. These workshops educate and raise awareness about LGBTQIQ issues and provide training, resources and strategies for being an ally.
In order to participate in the Module 2 workshop on Ally Development, you must first have completed Module 1. The Ally Development workshop focuses on expanding the network of LGBTQIQ allies at Montana State University. Participants learn what it means to be an ally, techniques for being an advocate, and challenging heterosexism. Safe Zone Allies display Safe Zone placards to identify themselves as individuals who have participated in the Safe Zone Training program and have chosen to educate themselves about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues. These symbols indicate safe and welcoming places on campus for members of the LGBTQ community.
This workshop is free and open to members of the MSU community. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend.
