Q:

What is a definition of positive space?

A:

A number of positive space initiatives in universities and colleges work to create receptive, welcoming environments for bisexual, gender variant, intersex, gay, lesbian, questioning, transgender, transsexual and two-spirit communities and individuals. The University of British Columbia and George Brown College are two institutions that emphasize the importance of positive space.

The University of British Columbia states its Positive Space Campaign is also intended to foster inclusive and respectful dialogue on issues of sexual and gender diversity by identifying particular spaces where such diversity is valued and supported. George Brown College notes its similar initiative is intended to raise awareness of differences and diversity within the campus community thus increasing sensitivity.
