The State of Higher Education for LGBT People is the most comprehensive national research of its kind to date. The report documents experiences of over 5000 students, faculty, staff and administrators who identify as LGBTQQ at colleges and universities across the United States. Recommendations and findings from the national study provide the means for student activists, campus program planners and policy makers to implement strategic initiatives to address the needs and concerns of their LGBTQQ students and employees.
Being a student, whether an undergraduate or postgraduate, can be a stressful time. LGBT students may have additional concerns, such as worries about coming out, or reconciling their sexuality with their identity and/or gender.
Some students don't think of themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender but can be confused to find themselves attracted to someone of the same sex and/or confused if their gender expression is different to that expected of their genetic sex. These issues can be difficult to discuss with friends and family.
This website is designed to help with some of these issues and worries. There are information pages of various common concerns among LGBT students, or those questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity.
