The staff at the LGBTQ+ Culture Center


The LGBTQ+ Culture Center created a GroupMe account for the IU LGBTQ+ Community. In an effort to build an online community (a suggestion from one of our students), we are happy to announce this new tool to help us engage with each other. The coronavirus has changed how we engage as a campus and we hope this will help us stay in touch. Join us here!

Together We’re Better

Indiana University’s LGBTQ+ Culture Center is open for everyone. It serves as a safe and inclusive gathering space for LGBTQ+ students—a place where people are given the encouragement and resources to build meaningful relationships across differences and open their minds and hearts to matters relating to race, gender, and sexual orientation.

A Diverse Culture

We promote a climate of understanding, support, and celebration of diversity that enables IU’s LGBTQ+ community to learn, live, and grow. 

Learn about queer life at IU

It is another confirmation that diversity remains fundamentally important to the university. In the midst of the political rhetoric, IU continues to ensure it's a welcoming environment where all of our students can learn on a level playing field and in a safe environment.
