The Trinity Safe Zone Program is Trinity's visible support network for the LGBTQ community.
The mission of the Trinity College Safe Zone program is to create a more hospitable and welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) individuals on Trinity's campus by creating safe spaces for this community to seek information, resources, and open-minded people.
Trinity's Safe Zone program was initiated in the Spring of 2000 by the Women & Gender Resource Action Center (WGRAC) and is now a campus wide LGBTQ diversity program offered by the Trinity Queer Resource Center. Since its inception hundreds of faculty, staff, and students have participated in campus Safe Zone trainings and joined the program by displaying a Safe Zone sticker on their office or dormitory doors as symbol of program membership.
These stickers are a visible reminder of the campus' progress towards the elimination of homophobia and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
Are you interested in joining our visible support network and becoming a Trinity Safe Zone member?
