Welcome to LBGT@MIT

MIT and its surrounding communities offer a broad spectrum of services, activities, and resources for lesbian, bisexual, gay, trans* (LBGT), questioning, and supportive individuals. In fact, in 2011, MIT was rated the most gay-friendly school in the country by Newsweek! We have designed this site to connect you with the support and resources offered to you. If you can't find what you are looking for, need more information, or just want to talk with someone, please feel free to visit us in the Rainbow Lounge (50-005) or to contact us. You should also check out our About Us page to learn more.
