LGBTQIA+ Safe Zone Training Video

This video focuses on increasing awareness and education around LGBTQ+ health. By watching this video and sharing it with friends and/or coworkers, you can help reduce stigma, improve community health outcomes, and create safe zones for our local LGBTQ+ populations. This training is led by Wesley Cook, MSW, who also serves on the Roanoke Diversity Board. During his presentation, Wesley goes over LGBTQ+ terminology, trauma, and stereotypes experienced in the LGBTQ+ community. He also works to increase knowledge about working with LGBTQ+ populations, with special attention on how to better support these populations as they come out or experience negative behavior within their communities.
