Gender, Sexuality, & Society
2020-2021 Virtual Living Learning Communities
To current UCLA students living on and off campus: join us virtually this year! While “community” may be built in new ways, it will still be the motivation behind all that we do. We look forward to connecting with you!
The Gender, Sexuality, & Society community provides a living and learning environment to raise awareness and educate students around topics of gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and social justice. This community creates a safe and supportive space that welcomes and celebrates every intersection of a student’s identity.
All students, regardless of identity or major, are invited to participate in the LLC as topics of gender identity and sexual orientation are discussed in a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment.
The Gender, Sexuality, & Society LLC is located in De Neve Acacia floors 3 & 4.
