Our staff and the young leaders whose work we support strive tirelessly to affect positive change for LGBTQIA+ students in the Midwest and nationally. We’re also a resource for members of the media and other digital news platforms seeking information on LGBTQIA+ student organizing, inclusive and intersectional higher education practices, and programming, including the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference.
We’ve assembled helpful links, resources, news, and events for journalists and bloggers seeking our perspectives.
