Unity Hour every Wednesday at the ethnic & gender program offices

You are invited every Wednesday to visit one of the 8 program offices in Costo Hall and the HUB. The LGBT Resource Center will kick things off with the first Unity Hour during week 2.   Just how many people will fit into our space at one time? Come by the center in 245 Costo Hall and check it all out, along with free food and great conversation. Take a tour of our CyberCenter, Library, Meeting Room (aka "room for inappropriate conversations"), Lounge, and offices that feature muppets and supportive staff.

If you've ever hesitated to walk or roll into the center, we extend a special invitation to you to make this the day and time you do so. We think you'll want to come back!

UC Riverside Named a Top-10 Trans-Friendly Campus in U.S.

From The Advocate (8/15/12):

"...UC Riverside (UCR) is one of the country’s most active colleges in educating the campus about trans people.  Through its LGBT Resource Center, UCR offers an ally training program specifically about the experiences of trans people, and it commemorates the Transgender Day of Remembrance through a series of posters displayed around campus that feature individuals who have been murdered because of their gender identity or expression.  Complimenting this effort, the center is currently developing a poster project of important living trans figures, with a focus on trans people of color.  In 2005, UCR was the first public college in the U.S. to offer gender-inclusive housing for both incoming and returning students.  This year, the college collaborated with eight other campuses to organize the country’s first intercampus retreat for trans/genderqueer and gender-questioning college students, building on a highly successfully trans retreat at UC Irvine in 2011."
