We offer a variety of programs throughout the year. Some programs are in conjunction with OUT Week and Pride Week and other programs are hosted by our student staff members. Past programs offered: Dine & Discuss, Coming Out Discussions, LGBT Book Club, OUT@ the Movies, Queer Words-Queer Worlds and Mom's Tea & Social.
TRANSITIONS: Transgender Support Group
Transgender individuals ranging from those who are questioning their gender identity to those who need practical help and support in changing their name, seeking medical treatment, communicating with family members, and adjusting to the change in their gender identity on campus and elsewhere can benefit from this support group. Contact Dr. Susan Young at (740) 593-1616 or firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest in joining the group.
This program is held during the first weeks of Fall Quarter to welcome students new to OU to the LGBTA Community. The program covers the services and programs of the LGBT Center, the activities of LGBTA organizations, and the past, present and future of our community. Additionally, Athens area resources are reviewed.
Community Celebration & Pride Graduation
Each Spring Quarter we close out the year by congratulating our LGBTA graduates at this event that began rather informally in 2000. Since then this program has grown into a celebration of all that was accomplished during the year. Check out the CALENDAR for the date and details.
We offer a variety of one time and special programs throughout the year and assist the LGBTA organizations in hosting OUT Week and PRIDE Week speakers, programs and events.
