About Us

The Office of LGBTQ Resources provides services and support for students, faculty and staff across the University, in part by providing training and support for the programing, organizations and initiatives of students, faculty, staff, alumni and the local community.

Whether you're new to Yale or you've been here a while, you can find a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students, faculty, and staff. The Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Resources can help you connect to others in the community and learn about Yale's LGBTQ social, cultural and academic programs and events. We work to create a visible LGBTQ community that includes staff, faculty and students from all of Yale’s schools and from a wide variety of life experiences. We actively network with other Yale offices that advocate in support of diversity.

Please explore the resources available for undergraduate studentsgraduate and professional students; and staff, faculty and postdoctoral fellows, and feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns!
