Welcome to George Mason’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, & Questioning (LGBTQ) Resources!

WELCOME NEW AND RETURNING MASON STUDENTS

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, queer, and questioning (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.

WE ARE GETTING READY FOR PRIDE WEEK 2018

ALL GENDER RESTROOMS 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.

We are currently refining our list of single stall user locking restrooms that includes all of Mason’s Virginia campuses to work with facilities and signage folks to advocate for the all gender restroom signage pictured here (consistent with current transgender and nonbinary inclusive best practices), but in the meantime, we have checked the Fairfax campus Unisex Restrooms (these restrooms may be labeled Unisex in a variety of ways– including being gendered as both male and female or the half person from a couple years ago), here is a current listing. For more information about this project, please contact LuLu Géza Kelemen at ckelemen@gmu.edu
