Janine Feil
01:08:45
I want to become more informed about how to support my students, but I feel very uninformed about the LGBTQ community in general. Can you assist?
Lauren Kocher
01:08:51
Moving away from using "guys" has been a big one for me as well! Retraining your language is tough, but so important
Gene Williams
01:09:19
Janine, we would enjoy working with you.
Jen Hall
01:09:45
Thanks Janine for being open to learn. Please check out the resources on our site and feel free to contact us.
Aimee Stubbs

I know some people regard "folks" as too rural or perhaps uneducated, but it has been the easiest word to retrain myself to use.
JoyAnn Boudreau
01:10:14
Thanks for finding the podcast link, Simon!
Simon Helton - ISTE
01:10:27
No problem!
Lauren Kocher
01:10:35
I use "folks" a lot, but I also like "everyone" and "friends" when the context is appropriate
Kevin Moore
01:10:48
Never underestimate a well-placed “y’all”
Jen Hall
01:11:08
True Kevin :)
Gene Williams
01:11:22
Aimee, I am working to replace my qualifying language as well; it is a process … practice and find the language that is most comfortable for you.
Jen Hall
01:12:06
I am working on it too. Choosing words more carefully.
Aimee Stubbs
01:12:13
I love using y'all. :)
Sabia Prescott
01:12:17
Related to this quote, there’s a great book called Safe is Not Enough, by Michael Sadowski, on exactly that. https://www.hepg.org/hep-home/books/safe-is-not-enough
DODIE AINSLIE
01:12:20
Do you have any suggestions on ways to educate fellow staff on how they can be allies? I've talked to some and they tell me 'well I don't know what I should say... so I don't get into it...' I like to think we all can be kind...to all... and that is my advice for starters but if there are other resources out there that would be great... maybe scenarios that I can share with them?
Gene Williams
01:12:22
Cisgender relates specifically to gender rather than sexuality. A person can be cisgender (often abbreviated to just cis) and have any sort of sexuality. For example, two men may both be cisgender but one straight and one gay

Here is a link to our resources Pages: https://www.edupridealliance.org/resources
Janine Feil
01:13:49
I’m not even sure what that means.
Simon Helton - ISTE
01:14:04
What what means, Janine?
Simon Helton - ISTE
01:14:13
What what means, Janine?
Janine Feil
01:14:17
cisgender
Sabia Prescott
01:14:51
Janine, you’re probably not the only one! Happy to talk about this quickly next if that’s helpful

Sabia will answer that, Janine!
Janine Feil
01:15:13
thank you
Lauren Kocher
01:15:14
Cisgender = Folks whose gender identity matches the gender they were assigned at birth
Janine Feil
01:15:43
Is the opposite transgender?
Janine Feil
01:16:47
I’m trying. Like you said there is a lot of unlearning to do, especially for older folks, like me.
Lauren Kocher
01:17:24
Trying is huge, and a very important step in the process! :)

My Trans Friend, an Episcopal Priest shared the genderbread person with me. I use it in diversity conversations here on campus.
Jeff Glade
01:20:28
Thank you to everyone for doing this! I have to duck out early for a meeting. I submitted on the website to join the alliance and I look forward to working with y’all 😉 in the future!

DODIE AINSLIE

Totally agree--- being seen and a feeling of belonging is SO important-- it is everything
Jen Hall
01:24:14
Yes - Dodie - agreed
Gene Williams
01:24:21
Keith, am currently shifting my attitude and including the word 'queer' in my language and love my queer self.
Jen Hall
01:24:49
Mee too Gene :)
