BAGLY and Campus Pride are helping LGBTQ students and their supporters make informed decisions about attending LGBTQ-Friendly colleges and universities. As this year's annual LGBT Friendly College Fair comes back to Boston, over 30 colleges and universities will be coming together while specifically catering to LGBTQ students and addressing their questions and concerns. This is a free event, and is open to all LGBTQ youth and young adults, allies, and families.

Grace Sterling Stowell, BAGLY's Executive Director says, "This college fair is an important opportunity for LGBTQ youth and young adults to get more information about safe and supportive learning environments. In addition, it sends a strong message to the LGBTQ communities that there are dedicated and safe spaces for them when they consider attending an institution of higher education."

“Accessibility to higher education for LGBT youth should be a number one priority. Research tells us that LGBT youth are at higher-risk when it comes to harassment and safety in secondary education, so we need to be sure that they find the right college for post-secondary education,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride, “The colleges at this fair are actively providing services to LGBT students and want students who are out and part of the campus community.”

BAGLY is also providing FREE statewide transportation through The AGLY Network for those who need it.
