Privacy, confidentiality, safety, security and happiness – all students are entitled to them but challenges are often greater for LGBTQ students due to misunderstanding, peer pressure and fear. Thankfully Campus Pride has created a robust and friendly database to help LGBTQ students make informed decisions for a successful transition to college.

LGTBQ-friendly college/university resources that help athletes, artists, and academics find their perfect college fit.
