Creating LGBTQ+ Curriculum and Classroom Resource Guide

This guide is meant to serve as a starting point for instructors and professors to create more welcoming and safe spaces at colleges and universities for LGBTQ+ students. LGBTQ+ is a common abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer plus community. While LGBTQ+ is the acronym used in this guide, we know that some identities are not mentioned in the LGBTQ+ acronym such as asexual, intersex and pansexual, but this information is applicable to students of all SOGIE identities (sexuality and (romantic) orientation, gender identity and gender expressions).

Please refer to the SOGIE dictionary at for more definitions.
