Safe Zone Program
The Safe Zone Project at Bowling Green State University promotes awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) people. This workshop series provides education concerning LGBTQ+ issues and seeks to improve the environment for LGBTQ+ people. The project's main goal is to build a support network of allies for BGSU's LGBTQ+ Community.
Lavender Welcome is a fun and energetic community program hosted during BGSU’s Weeks of Welcome. The program, held in BTSU’s ballroom, highlights facets of LGBTQ+ social culture through performances and showcasing the talents of members of BGSU’s underrepresented communities. This program has a secondary focus on educating interested students in how they can become involved with affirming student organizations and with supportive services. Lastly, the initiative allows new and returning students to begin establishing a campus climate inclusive of LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff.
“Lav Grad,” as we call it, is the recognition ceremony that honors LGBTQA students who are graduating seniors. The program provides a space for LGBTQ+ identifying graduates to celebrate their time at BGSU and recognize members within their community who have made their experience memorable. The LGBTQ+ resource center utilizes Lav Grad to recognize allies and students with “Friends of the Resource Center Awards” and celebrate the achievements of the past year.
