LGBTQIA+ Mission Statement:

Antelope Valley College remains committed to providing equal access, education, and opportunity to all students, especially welcoming students with diverse sexual orientations or gender identities. We aim to provide a secure environment for students whose identities include but are not limited to: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA+) and their allies . Through a variety of educational opportunities, campus events and community resources, we celebrate diversity within the context of sex, gender and sexual identities. Our goal is to increase cultural awareness regarding all the intersections of identity while promoting equity from a local, national, and global community standpoint. The resources provided serve as a guide are aimed to be a base guideline and support system, as we consistently work towards highlighting new voices and experiences from LGBTQIA+ community members.
