Statement from the Gender + Equality Center

LGBTQ Allies

The University of Oklahoma’s Gender + Equality Center (GEC), under the Division of Student Affairs, upholds the University as a place for all students to belong, live, study, socialize, work, and thrive together.

Today however, our LGBTQ community is most likely questioning whether that statement and, subsequently, the University of Oklahoma is a place for them.

To a community who consistently faces dehumanizing, marginalizing, and condemning viewpoints and actions, let us assure you, you are valued, wanted, and advocated for here. The untenable comments of one are not representative of the values of the larger OU community. Through the work of the GEC’s programs and services across all OU campuses and training over 5,000 students, faculty and staff as allies, I have personally experienced a commitment to welcome and affirm the LGBTQ community on our campuses.

I, alongside over 1,000 of the University’s active LGBTQ Allies, are available for those who want to process this situation or need support, especially during an already challenging and stressful final’s week. The GEC, Student Affairs, and LGBTQ allies will continue to advocate with and for you.

Director, Gender + Equality Center
