For more than 20 years, the Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground has proudly hosted an LGBTQIA+ community reception each September for new and returning students. This year, we are adding on to that tradition with the introduction of our LGBTQIA+ Community Resource Guide.

We worked closely with the Center for Gender, Sexuality & Activism (CGSA) and the Queer Activist Collective (Q) to curate the most essential resources both on campus and beyond for the LGBTQIA+ student community here at Boston University. Check out the full guide here and links to additional resources mentioned in the guide below.
