Please note that due to the evolving situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the LGBTQ+ Culture Center has suspended all in-person activities until further notice; however, you can still get in touch with us by phone and email. Thank you for your understanding as we work to promote the safety and well-being of all our community, university, and campus partners.

Opening a Dialogue

We provide information, support, resources, and counseling to members of the IU Bloomington campus and the larger community. Through collaboration, education, and outreach, we create a learning environment where all members of the LGBTQ+ community can find the support they need for a successful college experience, while helping others to grow in their understanding of gender and sexual diversity.

Ally Training Workshops

An ally is someone who works to be an agent of social change. Ally Training workshops are available for IU departments or groups wanting to learn more about issues that affect LGBTQ+ students. Each workshop focuses on a different issue or theme within the LGBTQ+ community. Training includes information about LGBTQ+ terminology, good listening strategies, and campus and community resources available to LGBTQ+ students.

Transitioning at IU

Transitioning can be an emotional process. We are here to help with support and information. Transgender and gender-nonconforming students have created a comprehensive guide on transitioning while at IU. Students may also reach out to LGBTQ+ Culture Center staff for support and additional resources during their gender transition.
