Safe Zone Training

Oklahoma State University's Safe Zone Training is designed to identify and educate allies for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community on campus. A Safe Zone ally is someone who chooses to become educated about LGBTQ issues and believes all sexual orientations and gender identities/presentations should be acknowledged and supported. Trainings last two and a half hours and are held monthly.

Safe Zone Training:

  • Introduces the LGBTQ community and its many facets and intersections
  • Covers contemporary LGBTQ issues including hate crimes legislation, population data and statistics, Oklahoma LGBTQ resources, the spectrum of gender and sexuality, microaggressions, and more.
  • Provides tools to better support LGBTQ individuals and assist in advocating for LGBTQ rights.
  • Includes a sticker of the OSU LGBTQ Safe Zone logo to display in one's office space, which serves as a visible message of support and inclusion of the LGBTQ community.
