LGBTQ Student Resource Center

LGBTQ Resource Center Logo

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) Student Resource Center provides resources, services, and programs for students that may have questions pertaining to the lives of LGBT students or students that already identify as LGBT and are looking for a safe space. The center is designed to create a safe, inclusive Indiana State University community regardless of a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression. The Center will actively collaborate with the Spectrum student organization.

Spectrum (Student Organization Partner)

Spectrum is the student-led organization at Indiana State University that exists to unify gender and sexual minorities and their allies. Through programming and community outreach, Spectrum works to strengthen the community and create an environment that fosters acceptance for anyone, regardless of sexuality or gender identity.

Spectrum encompasses a broad range of individuals from different backgrounds who are committed to equality. We come from the campus community, area colleges, and the Terre Haute community. If you are interested in joining Spectrum, join us during the academic year Tuesdays at 7 p.m. on the 3rd floor of HMSU. Visit our website http://www2.indstate.edu/spectrum/ or email us at indstatespectrum@gmail.com for more information or to get involved.

International Pronoun Day

International Pronouns Day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities.
