Harvard College has not only been recognized as a top BGLTQ-friendly institution by --- such as Her Campus, the Huffington Post, and Campus Pride, but Harvard students also agree that Harvard’s campus is an actively inclusive and accepting environment for folks of all identities. There are several LGBTQ student groups that cover a variety of interests. There are many opportunities for LGBTQ students and their allies to be involved in activities on and off campus.
Harvard has a non-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. If at any time you experience any type of harassment or discrimination there are support systems in place to address these bias incidents. In congruence with the College's mission to create a diverse, inclusive, and proud student body on campus, the Harvard College Office of BGLTQ Student Life provides support, resources, and leadership development for bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, and questioning students.
Harvard has been at the forefront in actively addressing the needs of its BGLTQ+ students, including recently providing gender-inclusive registration. Harvard is continually working to better its outreach and resources available to members of the BGLTQ+ within the Harvard community.
An extensive list of Harvard’s many student groups-- such as Queer Students and Allies, Girlspot, and Trans Task Force-- counseling groups, health services, and other resources available to BGLTQ-identified Harvard students can be found here. For resources more focused towards trans*, non-binary, and gender in general, visit our Trans* Resources page.
