A Guide to Going Home for Break: Resources for LGBTQ+ Students

Going home for University breaks is different for everyone. For some, it means a chance to reconnect with friends and family and eat some really great home-cooked meals. For others, it can be tough! Whether it’s going back to family’s house and re-adjusting rules and expectations or experiencing a sense of isolation while back in a hometown that never really felt like home, going home can be particularly tough for LGBTQ folks and people who have difficult relationships with their families.

Supporting Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex Communities

Many are aware of a leaked memo by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that seeks to narrowly define gender by a person’s biology, which would drastically roll back recognition and protection of transgender people under federal civil rights law (Green, Brenner, and Pear, Oct. 21, 2018, New York Times). This communication has deeply impacted many people within our communities. The Spectrum Center is a space affirming of trans, gender-non conforming, and intersex communities.


On Monday, May 7th, Spectrum Center officially opened on the 3rd-floor of the William Monroe Trotter Multicultural Center (1443 Washtenaw Ave). Spectrum Center will be located in the Trotter Multicultural Center from May 2018 through Spring 2020. Once the Michigan Union renovation is complete Spectrum Center will be moving back to the 3rd-floor of the Union in a new space.
