Trans Awareness Week (November 13–20) is a time for transgender and gender nonconforming individuals and their allies to take action and bring attention to campus by educating the ASU community and advancing advocacy around the issues of prejudice, discrimination, and violence that transgender individuals face. Transgender Day of Remembrance occurs November 20, when trans advocates raise awareness of the transgender community through education and advocacy activities.

Out@ASU promotes a campus that is open, safe and supportive, and provides educational opportunities, advocacy and programming that empower all students to thrive. Together we foster an inclusive and affirming academic and campus environment for LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Ally, and all gender identities and sexual orientations) students and their allies.
The School of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies offers a BA in social and cultural analysis with a concentration in queer and sexuality studies in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU's West campus.
This program combines transdisciplinary topics and methods to critically analyze the function of ideologies of sexuality; the history and present conditions of sexual identity formation; structural inequalities and queer resistance to those same inequalities; and the diversity of LGBTQA communities.
Study the experiences, history, culture and contemporary issues related to LGBT people with an emphasis on analytical skills and service to community. This program provides excellent preparation for advanced study in graduate and professional programs, employment in many fields, and activism in participatory democracy.
SafeZONE is a three-hour, in-depth workshop designed to increase the overall campus community's understanding and awareness of issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual/allied (LGBTQIA+) and other marginalized students. SafeZONE was created to encourage a more inclusive and accepting campus climate.
