Homophobia exists on a continuum, ranging from demeaning comments to systematic discrimination against people whose sexual orientation is inconsistent with the socially prescribed norm (i.e., heterosexuality). This workshop will explore key terminology related to homophobia, paint a picture of the various ways homophobia manifests, and make the connection between the issues of homophobia and sexual violence.
