Are you a helping professional in Peterborough interested in improving services for LGBT+ populations?


Join anya gwynne from PARN on April 11th for The Moment You Walk Through the Door: Improving Services for Marginalized Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Intersex People.

This course provides information for service providers to feel more confident, competent and comfortable providing services to people with diverse gender identities and expressions or whose sexual orientation may be different than the majority. Stigma and marginalization impact an individual’s health and well-being in many ways and affects whether that person will access services when they are in need of them. We want to help agencies to become more accessible, places of welcome for the communities we serve.

Tickets are $30.00. Please register through Eventbrite:
