LGBTQIQ

LGBTQIQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Questioning individuals. Members of this community may have unique experiences and stressors that can contribute to a variety of problems. Perhaps you are in the process of coming out, or are discovering your own sexual/gender identity for the first time. You may be out and proud, and are experiencing discrimination. You might be going through relationship problems with your significant other. Whatever you may be experiencing, we encourage you to contact the Counseling Center at (215) 895-1415, or by e-mail at counseling@drexel.edu, for assistance. The staff of the Counseling Center encourages inclusion, acceptance, and support of members of the LGBTQIQ community, and is available to assist with the development of a better understanding of yourself and of others.

On the Drexel University campus there is an organization known as Sexual and Gender Equality (SAGE). Offered through the Office of Multicultural Programs, the goal of SAGE is to help raise awareness of the LGBTQIQ community to the campus at large. SAGE offers informational training sessions to campus organizations and groups at no charge, with the goal to increase the number of Allies available to members of the LGBTQIQ community. For more information on how to become an Ally, please contact Kerry Hooks at kerry.m.hooks@drexel.edu or visit the Office of Multicultural Programs.
