We are deeply grateful for the support of our generous donors who make many of our our programs and initiatives for Yale's students, staff and faculty possible, including the Wallace-Sexton Travel Funds to Creating Change, the GALA Summer Fellowship, and our extended staffed drop-in hours. Contributions of any amount are welcome at any time!

Most of all, I am grateful for the way the Office helped me to counter feelings of loneliness as a queer black woman on Yale's campus. In a place where I am often the minority, it has been unique as a space where I have always felt like I belonged.

— Student, Class of '21

The Office is a wonderfully calm space where there is no pressure to perform your queerness. I am already understood, and I am already welcome.

— Student, Class of '20

Being able to spend time in the Office makes me a better, happier student, since I always feel more relaxed and confident leaving it.

— Student, Class of '19

It means so much to me, as a queer undergrad, to have a space entirely dedicated to the needs of a community that I am part of, which I think everyone at Yale seeks out and deserves to find.
