Welcome to LBGT@MIT

MIT and its surrounding communities offer a broad spectrum of services, activities, and resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* (LBGT), questioning, and supportive individuals. In fact, in 2011, MIT was rated the most gay-friendly school in the country by Newsweek! We have designed this site to connect you with the support and resources offered to you. If you can't find what you are looking for, need more information, or just want to talk with someone, please feel free to visit us in the Rainbow Lounge (50-005) or to contact us. You should also check out our About Us page to learn more.

If you think that you have been a victim of a homophobia, transphobia, or a hate incident, please fill out this anonymous form to let us know about it.

Parenting Group: Raising Children of All Ages as an LGBT Parent
There are many issues that all parents have in common, including how to support your child's emotional well-being, have difficult conversations, and keep your child safe and happy. Beyond these universal concerns, LGBT parents face some special issues. Come join other supportive LGBT parents to discuss issues such as "coming out" to your children, dealing with your child's peer concerns, school activism, playgroups, stigma, and anything else that touches your life as an LGBT parent. You are not alone. Share experiences and strategies with others in this lunchtime group.
