LGBT Resources

As Rolling Stone magazine wrote in 2001, “Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut, has always been at the forefront of gay campus culture: What happens there tends to occur at other campuses a few years later.”

The New Haven community overall is diverse and welcoming, with many resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, staff, faculty and their partners and families. Yale University offers privileges, including the Yale affiliate ID, and benefits such as healthcare coverage to same-sex domestic partners. The State of Connecticut became in 2005 the first state in the union to voluntarily pass legislation allowing same-sex couples to enter into civil unions. Yale University and New Haven offer social and arts events, nightlife, and volunteer opportunities to support and enrich the LGBT community.
