The GLBT Resource Page provides many links for great resources around the web for people in the GLBT community. The links are some of the best resources on the internet to help GLBT people and their allies get informed, empowered and active.

Jeannette Marks House, located on Mt. Holyoke's campus, is a space (similar to the RCSG) where students are able to discuss issues about gender and sexuality. There is also a resource library available to students who wish to learn more.
