BGLTQ Advising

Our aim is to create an open, supportive and vibrant space for students around issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. Please feel free to talk to us about anything queer-related, including: coming out, harassment, family issues, being out in the workplace, health concerns, dating, and anything else you can think of. Please know that you don't need to identify as B, G, L, T or Q to talk with us. We are happy to talk if you want to know more about how to be a better friend and ally to BGLTQ students, if you are interested in queer history and politics, or you just have questions about our lives and experiences.
