Clevelanders Learn Cultural Competence For Gay Games

Hundreds of Greater Clevelanders have completed a cultural competency training program developed by the Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio, in preparation for the Gay Games, being held next week in various venues throughout Cleveland and Akron.

Up to 30,000 people are expected to either participate or attend one or more of the games or related events.  Christen DuVernay is Director of Programs for the Diversity Center, and in this interview, she explains gender fluidity, non-conformance, and why the word "queer" is no longer considered an offensive term among members of the LGBTQ community.

She defines LGBTQ, too.
