A lot of the content I create on this site begets the question, “So what do I do about it?” I hope, through this page and other efforts, to create a productive outlet for that energy.

Below you’ll find some featured activities from TheSafeZoneProject.com, a free online resource for LGBTQ+ and ally training workshops. You’ll also find courses that I’m currently offering.


I can't think of a better way to help a group learn about gender, sexuality, and social justice than through engaging activities. A powerpoint or book chapter will never compare.

That's why I've spent years collaborating with Meg Bolger on TheSafeZoneProject.com, a free online resource for powerful, effective LGBTQ+ education and allyship training resources.

Here are a few of my favorite activities we've published:

Courses & Trainings

Maybe you're looking for something a little more involved than an activity. Allow me to present Classes: what happens when you put a bunch of activities in a sequence.

I've had a back-and-forth relationship with online classes for years now, and I've finally landed on a forth that I think I'll be sticking with. As of July 2018, we started creating and hosting online courses at The Safe Zone Project.

If taking a class with me sounds like something you'd like to do, what we're offering at the SZP is your best bet. You can, of course, sign up below for alerts in case this changes.

Here's what's currently open for enrollment:
