LGBTQIA stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual.
The Community Center (TCC) is committed to uniting the LGBTQA community through educational and developmental programs. As well as, providing resources for individuals new and old to the LGBTQA community for education and find much needed support.
The Gender Equity Center (formerly the Women’s Center) is a friendly, supportive environment for people of all gender identities to explore, celebrate, and educate the campus community about gender equity.
The mission of IALGBTIC is to improve the counseling services and quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals through education and advocacy. We believe all individuals should be free to develop their full potential regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. We recognize the unique challenges LGBTQ+ individuals face as a result of systemic oppression.
Although southeast Idaho is a great place to live—especially for those who love the outdoors—it is not the most welcoming to LGBT individuals. Building a sense of belonging is a shared responsibility, especially for those of us living in smaller communities on this side of the state. We can stand united to fight discrimination, to end school bullying—and we might as well have fun in the process! This website is being developed to inform everyone of LGBT resources currently available in Southeast Idaho. It is my hope that we will continue to build a strong LGBT community to make our home an even better place to live.
We seek to provide the campus with a variety of educational and informative resources, with a goal to create and maintain a safe environment for all students, faculty, staff, and guests, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.
The LGBTQA Office provides a safe and welcoming space for students and other members of the university community to explore aspects of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in an open and non-judgmental atmosphere. Our vision is for UI to become a campus that promotes the full inclusion of LGBTQA students, faculty and staff. To this end, we work together to eliminate homophobia, heterosexism and gender identity oppression.
Access Services is highlighting some of the library’s LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex, Asexual) resources. Laura Coleman has brought together a sampling of DVDs and books in a wonderful display at the Circulation Desk. Tristan Fishman, Access Services student lead, has graciously loaned his flag for our display.
