Welcome to the LGBT Center
We are so queertastically glad you are visiting our website and hope that you find information here that is helpful to you as well as your friends, families, communities, and networks of solidarity. Ohio University and Athens have built a strong rainbow foundation for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities; we are the first LGBT Center in the state of Ohio and one of 55 universities nation wide that offers Gender Neutral Housing. That said, we still have a lot of work in creating a community environment (on and off campus) that is truly safe and celebratory of people of all genders, orientations, and expressions of identity. As a center we hope that people come to understand and believe that when we say "all are welcome" we truly mean "ALL are welcome"...people of all orientations, genders, and identities.
We have a huge Resource section on this website. Click the RESOURCES tab on the left to access our library listings, coming out hints, ally information, resource links and more. Also check out this FEATURED resource about LGBT History!
