LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning) Students

LGBTQ students at the University of Florida encounter the same struggles as other students but also manage the stress of navigating in a world that is often less accepting of people that are not heterosexual and/or traditionally gendered.

Invisible Minority: Since sexual orientation and gender identity may not be immediately visible to others, LGBTQ people often have to deal with questions about coming out, worrying about others reactions and finding romantic partners. Given negative messages in society, some students worry about what impact their sexual/gender minority status will have on their career path, religious beliefs, health, family, and friends. The CWC strives to be a resource for students to discuss these and other concerns in a safe and affirming environment.
