The LGBTQIA Resource Center at Georgia Tech coordinates a range of programs and events throughout the year aimed at educating faculty, students, and staff about LGBTQIA issues, providing safe spaces for LGBTQIA students to build community and explore their identities, and facilitating conversations about LGBTQIA diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Happy LGBTQIA History Month!
Join us in celebrating LGBTQIA History Month!
Formerly known as Gay and Lesbian History Month, LGBTQIA History Month was started in 1994 by Rodney Wilson. Wilson was a high school teacher in Missouri at the time who believed that a month should be dedicated to LGBTQIA achievements and accomplishments.
