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: We will be remote during construction between May 22 and June 02!
