Indiana University – LGBTQ+ Culture Center


The LGBTQ+ Culture Center is pleased to continue its INTERSECTIONS series with seven additional sessions focused on Queer Student Leadership. The Fall Series, A Focus on Race, had 951 Zoom participants and over 4800 Facebook views.
INTERSECTIONS: A FOCUS ON QUEER STUDENT LEADERSHIP is an opportunity to dialogue with several Indiana University student leaders as they grapple with balancing various aspects of their identities. It is an opportunity to hear our students share their stories and hopefully broaden our understanding of the unique ways students develop, engage, and experience their identities at Indiana University. These Zoom and Facebook Live events will be hosted by Bruce E. Smail, Interim Director, LGBTQ+ Culture Center & Special Assistant to the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, & Multicultural Affairs. For more information and registration (links forthcoming), please visit our Events page.
Additionally, the LGBTQ+ Culture Center has expanded its curriculum from Ally 101 to five courses: Intro to Sexuality, Intro to Gender, How to be An Effective Ally, Social Justice 101, and Intersectionality. We will offer the Intro to Sexuality and Intro to Gender courses twice in the Spring semester. For more information and registration, please visit our Events page.

The LGBTQ+ Culture Center will continue to operate virtually until further notice. Please visit our Contact page for contact information and hours of operation.

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.
