Why should employers be interested in sexual and gender identity?

Do gay people raise gay people? Is transgenderism a choice? How do I tell my mom I'm gay? How to talk to students about LGBT+ issues? How much domestic violence occurs in LGBT+ relationships? In this workshop, you can ask all your burning questions about LGBT+ issues. The questions are asked anonymously so that you can also ask those things that you don't dare to ask publicly. Kristel Rannaääre and Eeva Koplimets, employees of the Estonian LGBT Association, answer the questions

▪️  𝗬𝗲𝘀, 𝗻𝗼, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗻. 𝗦𝗲𝘅𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗽

How to express interest and desire or rather dislike for sexual attention or activity? What is a consensual sex culture and what prevents it? What kind of sexual revolution does today's society need? How does this all work for people who are not straight and/or cis?

Let's discuss all these issues of sexual consent worked. The purpose of the workshop is to create an opportunity to think about personal boundaries in a safe and sex-positive environment, to disprove myths about sexual violence and to discuss how culture and the legal environment affect the attitude towards sexual violence. Regardless of whether you are hearing the term "sexual consent" for the first time or have been interested in this topic before, the workshop will provide some basic principles and an opportunity to dive into the nuances of consent.

The workshop is organized by the Ministry of Fe and conducted by Aet Kuusik and Elise Rohtmets

▪️  𝗘𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝗹 𝗲𝗻𝘃𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁

School is a place where a young person spends a significant part of his time. School is also a place where a young person should feel safe. But what are the situations where a student's sense of security can be shaken? How is unequal treatment and harassment expressed in the school environment and how can these situations be resolved? We are looking for answers to these questions in the workshop led by the Union of Estonian Student Unions.

We prepared the recommendations of the action plan for the promotion of equal rights of LGBT+ people for use by the state. We would like to introduce them to you and receive feedback on how to improve the recommendations. The head of our Norwegian partner organization, Inge Alexander Gjestvang, will also participate in the workshop, who will introduce the practice of Norway, where such an action plan has been in place for several years. Together we discuss the possibilities, what possibilities and effects the action plan has on the development of equal rights for LGBT+ people.

The workshop will be conducted by Estonian LGBT Association's Head of Advocacy Aili Kala.

▪️  𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝗔𝗕𝗖: 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗴𝗲

Do you know someone who is transgender, but feel like you don't know enough vocabulary about the topic? Or do you just want to learn how to create an inclusive environment for trans people?

By the end of the workshop, all participants will have a basic understanding of what language is appropriate to use and how to treat trans people politely.

The workshop is a safe environment where all questions and concerns are welcome. We can think through different situations together and thereby be more confident in supporting a transgender loved one, colleague, friend, or classmate.

The workshop will be conducted by two experience advisors of the Estonian LGBT Association - Eke and Signe. Eke opens up about the experience of trans people and Signe offers her perspective as someone close to a trans person.
