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.

Celebrating 10 Years with Pride!

The LGBTQIA Resource Center is celebrating our 10 year anniversary this semester and you are invited to celebrate with us! Throughout the semester we will have fun and exciting events open to the entire Georgia Tech community to honor the Resource Center's wonderful contributions over the past decade. 

Whether you join us to "bowl with pride," or attend Lavender Celebration, we want our Tech community to help us make this a year to remember. 

Take a look at the LGBTQIA Resource Center accomplishments over the last decade and learn more about how you can help celebrate! 

2024 Pride Month Book Read

Join us for our 2024 Pride Monthbook club as we read "I Don't Want to Die Poor," by Michael Arceneaux. Voted by NPR as one of the best books of 2020, "I Don’t Want to Die Poor" is an unforgettable and relatable examination about what it’s like leading a life that often feels out of your control.

Michael has never shied away from discussing his struggles with debt, but in "I Don’t Want to Die Poor," he reveals the extent to which it has an impact on every facet of his life—how he dates; how he seeks medical care (or in some cases, is unable to); how he wrestles with the question of whether or not he should have chosen a more financially secure path; and finally, how he has dealt with his “dream” turning into an ongoing nightmare as he realizes one bad decision could unravel all that he’s earned. You know, actual “economic anxiety.”

Pride Month Kick Off Breakfast

Kick off Pride Month with your Georgia Tech community! Students, staff, and faculty are invited to partake in a chicken and waffles breakfast and celebrate the beginning of Pride! Gluten-free and vegetarian options will be available as well. Please RSVP.

If you have any questions, please contact William Britto.
