LGBTQIA+ Points of Contact

Ariel Gentalen (they/them) is 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. Feel free to pop into Queer Social Hour, Fridays at 1pm, to talk to Ariel as well.

Ariel can be reached at the following email address: AGentalen@fullcoll.edu

LGBTQIA+ Safe Zone Project Resource Guide: A Community Manual for Local & National Queer Resources

Salvador Navarro at El Camino College and his team created this amazing resource guide.  Some is specific to El Camino, but most are Southern California resources that we could all use as well.  PS, Fullerton College is listed on page 37 as an LGBTQIA+ friendly campus!  Woot! ❤️ 🏳️‍🌈
“This guide is dedicated to providing you with information on free and low-cost resources on a range of Lesbian, Gay, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Asexual + (LGBTQIA+) services. It also functions as an educational tool when interacting with members of this community. This manual will serve as a starting point in understanding and addressing the needs of the queer student population and allies who may be unsure of where to begin their search for access to tailored resources.” https://rb.gy/9jdtq9 (Links to an external site.)

Trans Visibility Event with Alex Billings Recording

The Cypress College Queer-Straight Alliance and Theatre Arts Department with the support of our Student Equity and Achievement Committee at Cypress College are so incredibly excited to announce this amazing opportunity!

It’s so important to create more visibility and understanding of our trans students and employees. If you are able, please view this exciting event.



Visit the LGBTQIA+ Canvas shell – it has a collection of resources for the LGBTQIA+ community but is mostly used as a listserv for students to send out events and information.  We have an LGBTQIA+ fullcoll.edu website brewing, which will have a more complete collection of resources. We also have an LGBTQ+ Advocates Staff and Faculty List here.
