Our second YELP workshop focused on privilege regarding masculinity, racism, sexism, and colorism. This workshop looked to open a discussion with our students on the importance of privilege they possess to improve the world around them. This workshop deconstructed stereotypes and made these students aware of the world around them and how privilege benefits some and hurts others.

Students completed a unicorn activity where students identified differences between gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity and worked together to understand the differences between those terms.

The workshop concluded with a powerpoint of slides where students were asked to pick which photo was more feminine or masculine based on how they perceived the image. After they made their pick, the group came together and discussed their choice.
