The LBGT Resource Center at Michigan State University will be renamed on July 1 to “be more inclusive to the diversity of sexual and gender identities” such as asexual and agender students.
The center will be known as the Gender and Sexuality Campus Center.
Center Director Jesse Beal said in a press release (which notes subject’s preferred pronouns throughout; Beal’s are “they/them”) that the current acronym-style name “has become an outlier among Big Ten universities and Michigan’s public institutions” and is “often assumed to be an error.”
MSU President Samuel Stanley (he/him) said “The center will continue to be a critical asset to help prevent gender and sexuality bias and will be better positioned to serve our community with its new name.”
In an email to The State News, Beal and Stanley said the name change was announced on March 31 to coincide with the International Transgender Day of Visibility. TDV “celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of transgender and non-binary individuals.”
