About this guide

This guide highlights resources and information relating to LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual), Safezone Training, and allyship.

Resource Manual

The Safe Zone Resource Manual is a resource for all Safe Zone members. You are encouraged to take time to read through the contents of the manual to become familiar with the information it contains. The manual can be a source of information to you so you may more accurately respond to the needs of students who seek your support. Additionally, you may want to photocopy sections of this manual to give to a student. The manual represents a small amount of the information that is available about gay/lesbian/bisexual issues.

SIUE Safezone

What is Safe Zone?

 Safe Zone is a community of people who

  • Will be understanding, supportive, and trustworthy if LGBTQIA+ people need help, advice, or just someone to talk to.
  • Will not tolerate homophobic, heterosexist, cisgenderism comments and actions but will address them in an educational and informative manner.
  • Have attended Safe Zone training and have information on campus and community resources.

Mission and Goals

Safe Zone's mission at SIUE is to develop a campus community of allies and provide support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and ally/asexual (LGBTQIA+) students, faculty, and staff with the ultimate goal of developing SIUE as a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQIA+ people.
