Identity Education - A Video and Resource Project

The Identity Education Project exists as a way of informing and educating about the various identities that make up the LGBTQ+ acronym. There are five parts, each addressing specific different identities. Each part is broken up into two different pieces. A video component and a supplementary component. Each covers the same material but this approach allows for flexibility in the accessibility of the resource. The aim of this project is to clarify any misconceptions that may exist about the different LGBTQ+ identities as well as to supply information that may not have been known before.

The third part of the Identity Education series addresses the Q in LGBTQ . It is a matter of debate amongst some about what the Q stands for but for this series it stands for Queer and Questioning.

Generally though, it could be considered that these identities covers those who are unsure of what specific identity they are and those who are unsure of their heterosexuality and/or cisgender identity.
