why safe zone?

As an LGBTQIA+ identified person, it can be unclear who your allies are and where are safe spaces to be out as your true self. At times you may worry about whether or not you can disclose your identity at all. In order to help LGBTQIA+ identified students, faculty, and staff navigate these experiences and find support or allies, Lafayette College provides Safe Zone Trainings.

What is a Safe Zone Training?

Safe Zone trainings are opportunities to learn about LGBTQIA+ identities, gender and sexuality, allyship, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege.
