Spring 2020 Programs

spring20programs

As part of the LGBT Resource Center's dedication to build and support the LGBT community at UCI, we are continuing our program in a virtual model. All programs will be offered through Zoom, and will continue to be facilitated by both professional and student LGBTRC staff. 

Please take time to review our Community Agreements, as they are still upheld in these virtual spaces, along with all UCI university policies.

We acknowledge that the transition to virtual programming will take time and patience for all involved, but we want to continue to build and support our LGBTQIA+ community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the LGBTRC staff if you have any issues or questions about utilizing Zoom and/or our virtual programming.

With all said, only those with UCI emails can access these Zoom event links. We ask that you do your part to keep our community as safe as possible and not share these links with those who may wish harm to others.

Please click on the title of the program you want to attend, you will be brought to a google document with the program information. Log in to your UCI email for access to the link to join!
