  • What is a Safe Zone?
  • Definitions and appropriate language
  • What is sexual orientation and gender identity? Are they different?
  • What new and pending legislation in NYS and the US is important to LGBT people?
  • How can I be an ally to LGBT and questioning people? How can I best be supportive?
