The LGBT Resource Center provides a variety of programs and events for the community at UC Irvine!

Some programs you may see at the LGBTRC:


A discussion group for those who identify as transgender, nonbinary, and/or gender questioning. A great space to learn more, get resources, and connect with others in the trans community.


Queer, transgender, Black, Indigenous, people of color, or QTBIPOC nights is a space for those who identify as a person of color and part of the LGBTQ+ community. Discussions range from wellness and healing, to social media and movies, to activism on campus and more.

Lavendar Lunches

Lavendar lunches are a drop-in space focused on activities and topics of mental health, healing, support, and self care, in collaboration with the UCI Counseling Center!

Stay Woke

Stay Woke is a community knowledge sharing event, focused on the community coming together to discuss current news topics or other important topics. No one person knows everything, knowledge is meant to be shared, and together we can stay connect and informed about multiple issues, communities, and what is happening around the world.

One Foot Out: Coming Out Group *Fall Quarter only*

One Foot Out is a discussion group for anyone who is currently questioning their identity around the LGBTQ+ spectrums, newly out with their LGBTQ+ identity(s), and/or for anyone who is new to the LGBT community as a whole or here at UCI. Connect with others and take that first step to being connected and involved with the LGBT community and the UCI LGBTRC.

QT Book Club
