Welcome to the Cornell Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center. Here you will find a wide variety of resources, information about the LGBT community at Cornell, and ways to get involved as students, staff, faculty, or alumni. The LGBT Resource Center was founded in 1994 to be the central hub of LGBTQ life at Cornell.
Located in 626 Thurston Avenue, the LGBT Resource Center is here for you regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression. We strive to be an affirming and welcoming space on campus that works to incorporate principles of social justice into our programs and services. We hope that by reviewing our resources, you can be a resource to a friend and to your community. Understanding these issues and how to provide appropriate support to the LGBTQQIA community is valuable to everyone.
The LGBT Resource Center is staffed Monday through Friday. Our lounge is open for you to enjoy during regular building hours of the Intercultural Center. Please stop by and say hello or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Cornell University is a member of the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.
World AIDS Day - December 1st 2015
World AIDS day, held annually on December 1st, is a globally-recognized opportunity to offer support to both AIDS research and to those living with AIDS. It is also a time to remember those who have passed as a result of HIV/AIDS. James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, who worked at the World Health Organization in Switzerland as public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS, created World AIDS day in August 1987. This proposal was approved by their director, Dr. Jonathan Mann, who decided that the first celebration would take place on December the 1st, 1988. It is estimated that around 35 million people are living with HIV today, making awareness about the disease crucial. To celebrate World AIDS Day, make a commitment to learning more about HIV/AIDS.
