Sexual and Gender Diversity in Post-Secondary Education: LGBTQ+ Students Interview Series Report

The report titled, 'Sexual and Gender Diversity in Post-Secondary Education: LGBTQ+ Students Interview Series Report' was written by Linda Cabral, OUSA’s Summer Research Intern. It shares the stories and experiences of LGBTQ+ students from across the province who participated in OUSA’s LGBTQ+ Students Interview Series in the fall of 2018.

Main findings from the report highlight the need for both institutions and the provincial government to do more to protect Two Spirit and LGBTQ+ students. These students voiced serious concerns about health and wellness, campus resources and spaces, university policies, university teaching staff, security and safety, provincial policies, and financial stability all areas that impact on a person’s well-being and their ability to access and continue post-secondary education.
