LGBTQ Life Team

The LGBTQ Life Team is a resource for all things LGBTQ in all of our UR schools. Here are some examples:

  • Have a question?
  • Want to talk about your identities?
  • Thinking of coming out and want to chat about it?
  • Your friend came out and you have questions?
  • You’re an LGBTQ student and encountered an issue?
  • Need help navigating a name change?
  • Have a program or event idea?
