Mizzou's LGBTQ Resource Center celebrated their 20th Anniversary this week. The "Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Resource Center" opened in 1995 at Mizzou to provide support and resources for LGB students. The LGBTQ Resource Center advises the Triangle Coalition, Queer People of Color, Outgrads, Greek Allies, Mizzou NLGJA, and MIZ-OUT.
The Resource Center also has a multitude of programs and events that they manage, including the LGBTQ Mentorship Program, Proud Tigers. This program started in 2014 with 21 mentees and 24 mentor students.
Weekly people can tune into InsideOUT on 88.1, for Mizzou's weekly LGBTQ radio show. This year LGBTQ Center organized the 20th Annual Pride Photo commemorating National Coming Out Day. This year was the largest yet!
We are thankful that the largest University in Missouri has such an incredible center available to students. A big thanks to everyone who has been involved in the center the past 20 years.
Their website sums up the impact they have had on the lives of Mizzou students, "We believe that you’re good. You’re worthwhile and we’re glad that you’re at Mizzou and in the world. It’s okay and wonderful for you to be you, whoever and however you may be."
