LGBTQ Services

BMCC has programs and events are held throughout the year to support LGBTQ students and to explore the LGBTQ experience. LGBTQ Pride Month occurs every October at BMCC. The BMCC website calendar will contain specific information about upcoming events.

The Safe Zone program provides training to Faculty and Staff who are then able to foster an atmosphere of acceptance and inclusivity. Faculty and Staff post “Safe Zone” buttons and stickers to let students know of their dedication to LGBTQ concerns. Students can contact faculty and staff who are listed as Safe Zone Allies.

The LGBTQ student organization meets on Wednesdays, 2 - 4 p.m. and welcomes all interested students. Check with the Office of Student Activities in room S234 for the club's meeting dates and room number. Contacty them by phone at 212-220-8160 or email osa@bmcc.cuny.edu.

There is a Queer Communities Faculty/Staff Interest Group which meets regularly during the academic year. Contact coordinator Brian Kelly at bkelley@bmcc.cuny.edu for more information.

CUNY has a CUNY-wide LGBT Task Force as well as a Center for LGBTQ Studies.
