LGBTQ+ Network Information

LGBTQ+ Student Network

LGBTQ+ Student Network

 

The LGBTQ+ New Student Network at UW Bothell provides support, community, events, information, and resources for any first-year student or transfer student self-identifying as part of the LGBTQIA+/queer umbrella. This includes, but is not limited to, students identifying as lesbian/gay, bisexual/pansexual, transgender (including non-binary/genderqueer), queer, intersex, asexual/aromantic, or questioning. Allies are also always welcome to attend events or request information.

If you are a student who would like to join the Network, receive updates about Network events or information/resources, or need any help, just email the Network Lead at glbtqnsn@uw.edu. Your information will be kept private.

There are a number of resources available in the community and at the University of Washington Bothell for students who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. As part of your orientation process, you will have the chance to learn more and connect with this Network and its members.

Resources:

On-Campus:

  • Pride Alliance at UW Bothell: (UW1-161) The Pride Alliance at UWB provides community events and meetings for students at UW Bothell and Cascadia Community College who are active in the LGBTQIA+ community. It ensures that students feel like they belong, and introduces them to others who are also part of the community. It’s a great place for students to build new social networks, as well.
  • UW Bothell Counseling Center: (UW1-080)  UWB Counseling offers counseling appointments for UW Bothell students throughout the quarter. They can help students with addressing academic or personal concerns, or even lend a shoulder if a student needs to vent. All information shared is confidential and does not leave the office.
  • Diversity Center (UW1-173): The Diversity center serves as a social hub and values inclusion on campus. As well as being a safe space for students on campus, it also provides academic resources, and a place to study and socialize.

Local:

  • Lambert House: Located in Seattle, a space for LGBTQ+ youth 22 and under, to build a community. Lambert House has support groups, dances, fields trips, and a library full of LGBTQ books.
  • Gay City: Located in Seattle, a place for the LGBTQ+ community to get together, find resources, get services, and find community.

Additional Resources:

  • Learn How to Become.org: Provides scholarships and funding for LGBTQ+ students
  • The Trevor Project: Provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ+ people under the age of 25 (Trevor Lifeline: 1-866-488-7386)

 

Why We Became LGBTQ+ Student Network Leads

 

“As someone in the LGBTQ+ community, I’m excited to connect new students to the many resources we have on campus and let them know that they are welcome to come as they are and thrive”

-Anjah

 

College can be isolating for LGBTQ+ students. I would love to share my experience with other students.

 -Ruthann

“As an individual who is a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, it’s my aspiration to ensure that everyone feels included and has a place where they feel safe.”

 – Kate 

“To me, it is really important that people are comfortable in their own skin and embrace who they are. As a lead in the LGBTQ+ New Student Network I want to be supportive of people’s identity, celebrate with people who have embraced their identity, and empower people who maybe haven’t quite embraced their identity
