The Ally Network provides an avenue through which straight-identified allies and LGBTQ people can actively express their affirmation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Ally Network members are identified by displaying the Ally symbol (sign, button, magnet) and thus signify that their space is safe to talk about LGBTQ issues and that students and employees can be "out" or reveal their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Our Trans 101 Trainings are intended for those who have little or no knowledge of individuals who identify as trans. We will walk you through definitions, biology, and examples of life experiences. Our goal is to provide faculty, staff, and students with the information to become allies to the Trans population at Duke.
Please contact email@example.com if you would like to request a training for your department, center, class, staff, residence hall community, etc.
We ask for a minimum number of five attendees. We can present from 1 -2 hours depending on your needs.
My Truth Panels
Panels usually consist of 2-5 students that identity as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or a heterosexual ally. The general format is for panelists to share brief versions of their coming out stories or their experiences in dealing with the LGBTQ community as an ally. Then the panel gets involved in an active Q&A session with the audience.
