Our Mission

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center provides an inclusive and educational environment for the campus community and the greater St. Cloud area.

We recognize that identities in our global community intersect with and impact our daily experiences of gender and sexuality with race, ethnicity, class, ability, age, culture, and all social systems.  We are committed to social justice as we foster student development and personal growth, and we cultivate an inclusive, open, and supportive community through education, collaboration, advocacy and programming.

The LGBT Resource Center promotes full inclusion of LGBT+ folk and allies and works to intersectionally dismantle prejudice, discrimination and oppression toward and within the LGBT+ community.

Coming Out Open Mic Night

Join us 5:30 p.m. Oct. 11 in Atwood Memorial Center, Quarry Room.

To celebrate LGBT+ narratives, share your story through poetry, song, spoken word, dance and storytelling. Whether you identify in the LGBT+ community, or as an ally, cheer on those sharing their stories.


Color in Film: Paris is Burning

Join us 5:30 p.m. Oct. 16 in Centennial Hall, Room 100.

Join us for LGBT Resource Center’s film series called Color in Film. For the first film of the year, we are showing "Paris is Burning." The 1990 documentary by Jennie Livingston chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay and transgender communities involved in it.

This film series showcases the lived experiences of queer and trans people of color. The selected films emphasize the intersectional complexity of holding multiple minoritized and marginalized identities.  Join us once a month to experience incredible films that not only expand the representation and visibility of folk of color in film, but also disrupt common narratives told in queer media.
