Welcome to George Mason’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, & Questioning (LGBTQ) Resources!
Greetings from the Office
We have a lot going on this October: Celebrate LGBTQ History Month with us! See calendar of events
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.
National Coming Out Day 2016: Out & Ally List
Join us as we celebrate National Coming Out Day! We have an Out & Ally List to give LGBTQ students additional resources across campus, as part of our objective to build a campus climate of safety, equity, inclusion, and respect. The list includes Mason students, faculty and staff who have been Safe Zone trained and/or who are willing to be publicly out as members of LGBTQ communities. If you would like to be listed as a resource in either or both of these ways, please complete and submit this form!
Please contact LGBTQ Resources if you have any questions—Ric Chollar email@example.com or LuLu Géza firstname.lastname@example.org
All Gender Bathrooms 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.
