LGBTQ Life serves the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied community at Johns Hopkins. You’re invited to visit our office, attend an upcoming event, or email us to ask any questions.
What We Do
About LGBTQ Life: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Life was founded in 2013. We provide a central home for information about gender identity and sexual orientation across the Hopkins community. Find out what we’re about via our events page, by signing up for our weekly newsletter, or following us on Facebook.
Community Support: LGBTQ Life provides interpersonal support through our office (drop in or make an appointment with the director) and our peer mentoring program. We have many resources specifically for transgender people. We have a series of identity-specific meet-ups. We also encourage Homewood students to connect with the LGBTQ Support Group through the Counseling Center. We’re also happy to make referrals to other Hopkins resources.
Education: We provide a variety of educational sessions, including Safe Zone training. Join one of our upcoming events for opportunities to learn. Our website has a glossary of terms used by the LGBTQ community as well as information specifically about gender identity. Also check out the many resources on our links page.
Advocacy: LGBTQ Life works to make campus climate safer and more inclusive. We are actively involved with the Diversity Leadership Council and other campus partners who are invested in LGBTQ inclusion.
