Choosing the right school is vital for every college bound student, but it can be more challenging for those who identify as LGBTQ+. In addition to many obstacles that all students face, it is important that LGBTQ+ students also consider whether the institution has LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs, and practices to ensure a safe and inclusive learning environment.

Our new guide provides prospective students and their families with tools to identify the right schools, an overview of common challenges, tips for applying, and details on the federal laws that protect LGBTQ students.

Members of the LGBTQ community belong to a minority group, which is often a source of stress. Minority stress is defined as, “negative effects associated with adverse social conditions experienced by individuals of a marginalized social group.” In addition to the LGBTQ community, minority stress  can affect members of certain racial groups, religious, or practitioners of alternative lifestyles. In response to internalized bigotry and discrimination, some LGBTQ people drink alcohol in the hopes of coping.

Minority stress can cause feelings of isolation from society, family, and friends. Due to a lack of social support, members of the LGBTQ community who struggle with alcohol may suffer in silence. A major challenge for LGBTQ individuals who have been estranged by family members is lack of support.
