Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)


LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual/aromantic/agender. The resources in this guide focus on healthcare, treatment and the wellbeing of those in the LGBTQIA+ community as well as increase education on specific groups. Members of the communities may face specific health needs such as gender affirming care and finding trustworthy doctors that they can visit regularly.

Some other acronyms for the community include: LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender), LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning), or LGBTQQIP2AA ( lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, intersex, pansexual, two-spirit (2S), androgynous and asexual.) The "+" sign is to recognize the limitless sexual orientations and gender identities used by members of the community.

HSC also provides campus specific resources for LBGTQIA+ individuals
