Safe Zone @ SIUE

"Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people often grow up feeling “different” from the rest — and are typically keenly aware that the things that make them different may cause them to be rejected or discriminated against.

Just as it takes courage for LGBT people to be open and honest about who they are, it also takes courage to support your LGBT friends or loved ones.

We live in a society where prejudice still exists; where discrimination, both legal and illegal, is still far too common; and where even the physical safety of your friend, loved one or acquaintance can be at risk. That’s an unfortunate reality- and that’s part of your friend’s or loved one’s life.

Recognizing these facts and giving your support to that person will not only take your relationship to a higher level — it can also help take a small step toward a better and more accepting world, for your loved one and for all of us.

In fact, actively working to change these realities in our society is a great way to show support and achieve the type of world your friend or loved one deserves to live in."
Coming Out as a Straight Supporter.  The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, in partnership with Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) National, 2012. Web.

The Safe Zone program has been created to address the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students and their allies on the campus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

This program consists of training for faculty and staff to become safe zones.

Safe Zone allies are here to listen and be a safe space for others to share concerns, joys and experiences that they may not feel comfortable sharing in another setting.  Participants that complete the training will sign a pledge to be positive, supportive, and affirming of the LGBTQ community.

Safe Zone Training details can be found under SIUE's LGBT Resources webpage. Click Training Info
