Gender and sexuality show up in our lives hundreds of times a day. Despite being core aspects of who we are, conversations about these concepts are often hushed or dismissed. When we do hear about them — whether it’s in the media, or in our schools, workplaces, and communities — we are often misinformed, or painted an unhealthy, stigmatizing picture.

Now take all that and multiply it by 100 when we’re talking about LGBTQ+ genders and sexualities.

This self-guided Safe Zone training will give you an opportunity to explore lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other marginalized genders and sexualities (LGBTQ+).

Upon enrollment, you’ll create a username and password to access the course. You’ll use this to take the course, and will be able to log back in to revisit lessons and access materials whenever you want.

Howdy! I'm one of the co-creators of the Safe Zone Project. I'm a gender & sexuality educator, the author of A Guide to Gender and co-author of Unlocking the Magic of Facilitation, and the person behind the online resource and social justice comedy show It's Pronounced Metrosexual. You may have seen this toilet or this cookie I doodled. I also rhymed this TEDxTalk. I live in Austin, TX, where I love riding my bicycle and walking my wookie.

Our courses, like the rest of our resources, are offered in the spirit of the gift economy. What this means is you decide what to pay for this course. Our goal is to remove financial barriers, while inviting you to financially support our tiny team (Meg & Sam) and the course ecosystem.

We trust you to select the option that is right for you, based on your ability to pay, gratitude, or sense of what is fair.

Need help choosing which is right for you?

We know that "gift economy" is isn't the usual way of doing things. If you're struggling with choosing a tuition option that is right for you, you can consider the following:

  • Choose Tuition + Fund Scholarship if you want to provide a gift for someone who cannot afford the tuition, or the standard tuition seems lower than what you can afford for this course.
  • Choose Standard Tuition if you want to (and can) financially contribute to support the course resources, server costs, and facilitators’ time.
  • Choose Full Scholarship if you want/need to receive this course as a gift from Meg & Sam, and those who have funded scholarships.

And hey — regardless of your choice, at the end of the course you'll be invited to gift any amount, or request a refund.
