The mission for the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ) Affairs is to build, sustain and strengthen a safe, inclusive, and open environment for faculty, staff, appointed professionals, students, alumni, parents, and guests of all gender identities and sexual orientations.
Every Tuesday 4-5:30pm
This weekly group is a safe space for students to talk in an open and supportive environment about issues impacting their lives and the LGBTQ and Allied community. Students can discuss topics ranging from coming out to making new friends, from the media to gender identity.
Walking through the door to the UA LGBTQ support group was one of the biggest steps I ever had to make. I was so terrified of what I might find in that room...what I might find out about myself. My Midwestern upbringing didn’t include many lessons about sexuality and especially didn’t address feelings outside the heterosexual expectation. We had ideas about gay people (even though no one really knew any gay people), they were simple: you did not want to be one of them.
The LGBTQ support group was the first time that I reached out to other people my age regarding this topic. It took several months before I had the courage to contribute to the group topics, and then an additional year before I could come out to myself and to the group. I’m so very glad I went because it helped me become a more ‘complete me.’ I now live my life as a proud gay male and I’m so grateful to the support group for helping me through this tough phase in my life.
