About The Event

In celebration of Fairmont Pride, Rainbow Families is excited to offer a series of Parent & Caregiver Workshops.

Who:

Fairmont Teachers,Staff, Community Members, and Parents.

You do not need to be the parent of a LGBTQ+ student to attend.

What:

Two workshops designed to equip attendees with the information and vocabulary they need to talk with children in their lives about gender, sexuality, consent, and stereotypes in developmentally-appropriate ways and to advocate for LGBTQ+ students (as parents/caregivers, allies, teachers, and friends)  in classroom, extracurricular, and parenting settings.

When:

Session 1: Monday 6/5 7-8pm (Zoom; please RSVP for link)

Session 2: Wednesday 6/7 7-8pm (please RSVP for location)

The sessions are designed to build upon one another, so attending both is encouraged. However, you are also welcome to only attend one session.

Why:

  • To better understand and appreciate the diversity of our Fairmont community
  • To discuss challenges experienced by LGBTQ+ students and students who don’t conform to gender stereotypes, plus how to address them as a community
  • To build upon Fairmont’s precedent of robust DEI training in order to create inclusive school and home environments
  • To equip Fairmont families and community members with the confidence they need to have tough conversations with young people

Facilitated By:

Kaitlyn Custer, Sexual Health Educator and Facilitator of Fairmont’s Healthy Sexuality Program
