• Lavender LaGuardia

    Lavender LaGuardia is a voluntary list of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and/or asexual (LGBTQIA) staff and faculty at LaGuardia Community College. We aim to promote an inclusive and affirming climate for our students by expanding their knowledge of and access to LGBTQIA role models and mentors across campus.

    The goal is signaling safety to our students and fostering a network of support for all LGBTQIA members of the LaGuardia community.
