Tuesday, October 11, is National Coming Out Day. UH West Oʻahu is honoring this day by hosting a “Safe Zone” tent in the Courtyard from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students, faculty, and staff will be promoting support of the LGBTQ+ community by offering rainbow-colored lei to those who stop by the tent.
The event will also promote a series of Safe Zone trainings in October and November. The Safe Zone Training Program raises awareness of LGBTQ+ issues on campus and sharpens skills of allies to help end harassment. Participants receive a poster to display to indicate that they are part of a professional network of student support, as well as a certificate of completion. Trainings are scheduled for:
Monday, October 17, 12-1pm (B217)
Friday, November 4, 1:30-3:00 pm (C225)
Wednesday, November, 16, 3:30-4:30pm (B217)
