Affordable Colleges Online has created a guidebook (link below) to show LGBTQ students the various on-campus and online resources they can use to make their college experience more welcoming and supportive. This extends to LGBTQ teens, especially those preparing to make the transition from high school to college. Key elements of the guide include:
- Programs and policies to look for when searching for a LGBTQ-friendly school
- Information about various LGBTQ student organizations that have a presence at most colleges and universities
- A list of online resources for LGBTQ students
The guide also features interviews with Larry Lariosa, the Director of the LGBT Resource Center at UC San Francisco, and Craig Leets, Jr., the Coordinator of Portland State University's Queer Resource Center. The combined experience and insight from these two experts afforded us a much closer look at what college for LGBTQ students is truly like.
