About SafeZone
Since homophobia and limited understanding negatively impacts LGBT individuals, efforts to make the LGBT population feel welcome in any environment are needed. The OHIO SafeZone project identifies a growing network of students, faculty, staff and community members who are willing and prepared to provide support and information to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people. The SafeZone logo symbolizes one’s willingness and commitment to provide an atmosphere of acceptance and assistance. Members serve as an ally, friend, and referral agent.

SafeZone Road Show
If you can not attend one of our scheduled workshops, perhaps you can arrange for us to come to your Ohio University group or office. Contact Mickey Hart to schedule a workshop today (740-593-0239). You need to have 8 or more people for this option. (Remember, the SafeZone Project is a voluntary effort, so it cannot be mandatory for people to attend.) We try to honor all requests; however we rely on volunteer facilitators for these workshops. We appreciate requests 3 weeks in advance of your preferred date. We will not consider requests with a week or less notice.
