LGBTQ Resources - Carnegie Mellon University

LGBTQ Resources

Welcome to the LGBTQ+ Resources page! This site strives to provide the most comprehensive list of resources for our Carnegie Mellon community. We strive to make campus a supportive and affirming place for all intersections of identities, and provide specific resources for those individuals along the sexuality and gender spectrums. If you find that our site does not meet your individual needs, we encourage you to connect with our professional staff and Safezone members across campus.

Programs & Resources

SafeZone is a network of allies (faculty, staff and students) committed to providing a safe and affirming environment for all at Carnegie Mellon, including those in the LGBTQ community. By displaying a SafeZone sign in their work or living space, members of the SafeZone network actively show their support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. For more information about how to join SafeZone, contact Lenny Chan ( via email or phone at (412) 268-2142 or visit the SafeZone website.
