Daniel Witthaus: Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’

Session Info:

Are you sick of hearing ‘That’s So Gay’ and not knowing what to do?
Do you want a simple plan to challenge homophobia in your classroom?
Could your school benefit from PD described as “the best I’ve had in years!”?

In this session, challenging homophobia educator, Daniel Witthaus, will share two decades of professional development experience in how best to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) students and to challenge classroom homophobia.

The focus of these high-quality presentations is on how schools can become more inclusive and safer environments for all students, particularly same-sex attracted and gender questioning young people.

Daniel focuses on going beyond research and policy to uncover the most effective practical strategies and action plans. All work is in plain, accessible language.

Daniel will draw upon the formally-evaluated, award-winning educational package, Pride & Prejudice and his first book, Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’.
