Welcome to the Tufts LGBT Center

The Tufts University LGBT Center is kicking off the semester with an inside look into their cozy, safe space. From cookies on Mondays to their HD TV and private study rooms, the Center is decked out and ready for the spring! Check out their video below to see what they’re all about.

The LGBT Center is part of the Group of Six and works collaboratively with many groups on campus to provide education on the value of different identities and ensure that bias of any form does not undermine the academic, personal, or professional experience of any member of the Tufts community.

The LGBT Center is available to anyone  interested in learning more about LGBT-related subjects or issues of sexual and gender identity. It seeks to support and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer identities while maintaining LGBT visibility on campus and providing campus-wide education.

Sophomore Justin McCallum took some more amazing photos of the rally.

Grad student Hollis Bowe blogged about the pride flags flown all over campus and shared a nifty pic of the cannon painted appropriately for Coming Out Day. Here is another pride flag seen on campus:

Seen tons of these all over @TuftsUniversity. Proud to be an ... on Twitpic

Senior and admissions blogger Kyle Sircus reflected on this outpouring of support:

For many, Tufts is the home away from home where they can truly be who they truly are, an attribute of our school that I know is appreciated by so many.

Members of the Tufts community are also participating in the “It Gets Better” movement, where people share video messages to let LGBT youths know that while life may be difficult now, it gets better. English lecturer David Valdes Greenwood‘s video was covered by the Associated Press.

Freshman Jay Dodd and sophomore Ben Madsen shared this video (some swearing, but all heart):
