Welcome to George Mason’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, & Questioning (LGBTQ) Resources!
A HUGE thanks to all of those who participated in this year’s Lavender Graduation! Congratulations to the Class of 2016!
Greetings from the Office
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, & Questioning (LGBTQ) Resources is part of University Life at George Mason University. Starting in 2002, LGBTQ Resources has worked for and with the LGBTQ and ally communities at George Mason’s campuses to create an environment that is welcoming and conducive to learning. Our Mission: LGBTQ Resources works to promote the academic success, health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students and their allies. We work to sustain and strengthen a campus climate of safety, equity, inclusion, and respect in which LGBTQ and ally students can succeed and thrive at Mason.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) Campus Climate Task Force, established in Spring 2011 by University Life and supported by the Provost’s Office and Mason administration, spent 18 months reviewing the issues and concerns across the university for students who are part of the LGBTQ community. One of the projects this task force undertook was locating the all gender bathrooms at Mason. The LGBTQ Campus Climate Task Force created a list of these bathrooms in order to make these facilities more visible to faculty, staff and students. The list of all gender bathrooms can be found here.
