Counseling Center: LGBTQIA+ Support Group

  • Location: Potter Hall Conference Room, 408

This group is a supportive environment for members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual or allied) community to develop deeper self-awareness, explore ways to maximize their WKU experience. This group discussion may include topics such as: coming out, family, relationships, wellness, etc.  

The group meets weekly to socialize, to celebrate identities, and to provide feedback and support to those who may be struggling with hardships unique to being LGBTQ.  Group lasts about 1 hour.

Typically, it is facilitated by a WKU CC Staff, although for Spring 2020 semester may be peer led at times. This is not a therapy or counseling group. Hard topics may be discussed and advice requested; however, the leader reserves the right to suggest members attend individual counseling (if it’s clear further processing and individual attention is needed).
