Welcome

The LGBTQIA2S+ Resource Program consists of dynamic events and services created to support the needs of the lgbtqia2s+ campus community at Fullerton College. We strive to create a safe space for students to express themselves, connect with each other, and discover their unfolding identities, while prioritizing their mental health and well-being.   

 

Note: Our services are closed December 15, 2023 – January 5, 2024 for the Winter Break. We will return in-person on Monday, January 8, 2024.

LGBTQIA+ Points of Contact

We are here to support Fullerton College’s LGBTQIA2S+ community! Reach out if you are in need of resources, guidance, connection, or a little queer gossip. Your safety and experience on campus (in person or online) are important! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you are feeling lost, unheard, or just want to manifest an event or resource.

Events

Loud & Proud Process Group

Join our LGBTQIA2S+ Resource Program Community Therapist, Yanel Bueno (they/them) for a LGBTQIA2S+ brave space for processing everyday challenges and mental health concerns within the community. These process groups are intended for our student community, and will change thematically throughout the semester. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you. Let’s get loud & proud about our LGBTQIA2S+ intersectional identities and experiences!

Queer Social Mixers

This semester we’re hosting a monthly Queer Social to highlight identities on the LGBTQIA2S+ spectrum during their national awareness week. Join the LGBTQIA2S+ Resource Program Team for an afternoon in exploring identity, honoring representation, and dialoguing as a group to create ongoing community bonds. These programs will shed light on what these labels mean, how they operate in the world, and how we can choose fluidity between them. We’ll serve snacks and drinks, alongside a craft activity unique to each mixer. Join us to explore the LGBTQIA2S+ spectrum in this brave social space! These Queer Social Mixers are intended for a student community
