Additional Programming & Resources
ALL GENDER RESTROOMS
All Gender Restrooms are located in every building on campus. View our list & map of where to access these restrooms.
Safe Zone is a campus-wide program designed to educate students, faculty, and staff on LGBTQ identities and experiences and build their skills in actively creating a SUNY Brockport community that is inclusive for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions. During a Safe Zone workshop, participants will learn language that relates to the LGBTQ community, identify some of the issues facing LGBTQ individuals, develop skills for being an ally to LGBTQ people, and learn about resources for LGBTQ people on campus and in the community. Safe Zone aims to prepare individuals to foster an environment in which all people are free to thrive personally, academically, professionally.

QUEERING SEX EDUCATION
Many states don’t require K-12 institutions to provide sex education. Furthermore, those that do often don’t require medically accurate content and ignore or suppress LGBTQIA+ identities and needs. This reality contributes to misinformation or lackluster information by all students, but it particularly affects LGBTQIA+ students who then experience a higher rate of negative health outcomes like: relationship and sexual violence, STI/HIV transmission rates, and lower mental health. This program seeks to challenge cisnormative and heteronormative assumptions in sex education by actively queering the curricula, rooting it in sex-positivity, and exploring concepts of inclusion and accessibility.
