The LGBTQ+ Resources Center team
Trans Clothing Closet
To meet the need of Trans and Non-Binary students, we have a large selection of clothing available free-of-charge due to the generosity of donors. To utilize this resources, please reach out to our team via email firstname.lastname@example.org or in the web chat to schedule an appointment. This resources is available anytime the Center is open for in-person visits (see schedule above)
Due to our limited space and previous donations, we are only taking gift card donations for the time being. Based on student requests, we will do targeted clothing drives for just the items requested.
Gender Inclusive Restrooms
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 gender inclusive 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.
George Mason University has been ranked 3.5 out of 5 stars on the Campus Pride LGBTQ Campus Climate Index! We are among the top of the Virginia schools and aim to improve our ranking in the next year.
