Slippery Rock University's Jan. 14 Safe Zone training provided faculty, staff and students an opportunity to become an ally for those with an alternative sexual orientation or gender identity. The workshop provided training for those seeking to support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) students and peers, as well as information about the LGBTQI community, including terms, definition and struggles. Presenters provided tips for becoming an ally and offering referrals for professional help.
