Training Videos on Gender and Sexual Minority Issues
APAGS, through its Committee on LGBT Concerns, produces short training videos on topics that frequently arise for graduate students related to LGBT topics. These videos, generally less than 10 minutes each, offer evidence-based tips and peer-to-peer suggestions for dealing with difficult subjects and increasing one's cultural competency related to gender and sexual minority concerns. APAGS encourages open sharing and use of these videos in order to support the professional development of LGBT graduate students and allies.
