Resources For The LGBTQIA Community
LGBTQIA Victim Survivors
LGBTQIA individuals experience rates of sexual violence higher than people who identify as heterosexual. Reporting sexual violence as a LGBTQIA individual can bring additional difficulties as reporting may raise concerns regarding disclosure during the reporting process. These are very real concerns but we strongly encourage you to seek the support and resources available to you on campus and in the community.
Resources specific for LGBTQIA individuals include:
- Millersville University Gender and Sexuality Alliance
- Title IX: 717-871-4100
- Center for Counseling and Human Development
- LGBT Center of Central PA
- The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape has resources for those who identify as LGBTQ
- The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape
