About The LGBT*QA Resource Center

The LGBT*QA Resource Center was established in the Fall semester of 2011. Since its first year, the Resource Center has made substantial progress in creating an inclusive environment for LGBT*QA individuals on the Western Illinois campus. Now, it its 7th year, the Resource Center provides campus-wide programming, Safe Space Training, a cozy LGBT*QA Lounge, and spaces for engaging the Western Illinois University community in dialogue about LGBT*QA topics. Throughout the academic year, the Resource Center will be sponsoring and co-sponsoring a variety of programs such as Trans* Week, Camp OUT, Pride Week, Lavender Graduation, and many more!

Have a question, concern, or would like to request a Safe Space Training for your office? Do not hesitate to contact us!
