LGBT (LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL AND TRANSGENDER) RESOURCES

Located in the Student Activities Center, the UCLA Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Campus Resource Center provides a comprehensive range of education, information and advocacy services and works to create and maintain an open, safe and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, transgender, queer, questioning, and same-gender-loving students, faculty, and staff, their families and friends, and the entire campus community.

Services

Outreach & Education

The Center offers educational workshops and training seminars for classes, campus agencies, and departments about LGBT lives and issues. They design programs specifically for target audiences and may include students who talk about their own experiences.

Advocacy

The professional staff works throughout UCLA to ensure that LGBT voices are represented for sensitive and inclusive UC policies and practices. They provide confidential assistance and support to students, faculty, and staff who feel they have experienced harassment or discrimination, or who have questions round issues of health, housing, financial aid, classroom, and personnel. They are also available for consultation to the UCLA community regarding matters of policy pertaining to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Student Counseling

The Counselor in Residence, Dr. Saeromi Kim, is available for individual drop-in consultation several days a week. If you would like to schedule an appointment to speak with Saeromi please email her at skim@caps.ucla.edu.

David Bohnett Cyber Center

The David Bohnett CyberCenter, the first of its kind at a college or university, was established in 2004 within the LGBT Center through a generous grant from the David Bohnett Foundation. It is designed as a safe space for students to use new computers, print papers, and scan articles and photos.

Rae Lee Siporin Library

The Rae Lee Siporin LGBT Center library is one of the largest libraries of its kind at a college or university with nearly 4000 books and periodicals written for and about LGBT people. Students, faculty, and staff may study here, research the holdings, or plug in their own laptop computers to write. Books may be read here or checked out with your UC identification.
