Friendly Peer

The Friendly Peer Training Program provides basic information about the queer and trans community. The goal is for students to walk away with a better understanding of the queer and trans population, find resources on campus for queer and trans students, and ultimately to be a better, more friendly peer. All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase knowledge of Queer terminology.
  2. Increase sensitivity towards differences of sexual orientation and gender identity.
  3. Increase awareness of university culture, resources, and policies regarding the Queer student population.
  4. Develop a better understanding of heterocentrism, heterosexism, and homophobia.
  5. Identify ways to combat heterocentrism, heterosexism, and homophobia in their community.

Who Can Become a Friendly Peer? Any UNC Charlotte student can participate and become a Friendly Peer!
