The Gender and Sexual Resource Center works to provide a safe space and act as hub for organizations, resources, services, and programs of interest to the LGBTQ and Ally community at Northwestern. Our aim is to increase visibility and awareness of issues surrounding gender identity/expression and sexual orientation by uniting existing community entities and developing our own educational and outreach-oriented programming.
