Indiana University’s LGBTQ+ Culture Center is open for everyone.

As I celebrate being queer, poz, Black, partially deaf, and Caribbean; the LGBTQ+ community is a myriad of gender and sexual identities. It is important to recognize, celebrate, and value our multiple dimensions of identity that make up the LGBTQ+ community at Indiana University. We welcome you and encourage you to visit the LGBTQ+ Culture Center. We are here to support students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community.
