We're the MU LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trangender, Queer) Resource Center! It's our goal to educate about, support, and advocate for sexual and gender minorities at MU. We do this through advising student organizations, hosting the InsideOUT Radio Show, sharing resources through our center and library, and holding programs throughout the year such as Coming Out Week, Transgender Awareness Week, and Pride Month held every April. Our center is open to everyone, located in the basement of the MU Student Center.
Provide physical address and room number (if appropriate) so students interested in visiting are able to locate you.

InsideOUT, our KCOU radio show is featured weekly on 88.1 or through kcou.fm. Covering today's relevant topics, InsideOUT is a student-run and produced talk show touching on topics such as LGBTQ, Coming Out (stories, how-to advice), healthy relationships, Queer and Greek, Intersectionality, and other social justice topics relevant to the Mizzou community.
Safe Space training is a way to commit to creating a more inclusive and safe space for LGBTQ individuals. These trainings can be requested from our website, and can be adapted to tailor your organization/office/group. We request at least two weeks notice and traditional trainings take a minimum of 2 hours (but can be flexible with time).
OUTreach Panels offer opportunities to bring awareness to the Mizzou community by sharing personal stories. Studies have shown that the best way to combat homophobia is through personal connections, and OUTreach panels provide just that! Requests for an OUTreach panel can be made on the MU LGBTQ website.
Briefly list and explain ways students can get involved with your office or program. This includes but is not limited to employment, volunteer, and leadership positions as well as general membership.
MU LGBTQ has opportunities to take on leadership roles through staff volunteers, Safe Space training, OUTRreach Panels, or through the different student organizations (Fluidity, Queer People of Color, or Triangle Coalition). Staff volunteers are accepted at the beginning of each academic term (Fall, Spring, and Summer).
