ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – With gay pride this week, the University of New Mexico will be taking part in several outreach events.
The University of New Mexico LGBTQ resource center’s goal is to get every department on campus to be a “safe zone” which means trained people are available to talk about issues in the LGBTQ community.
“We are seeing on campus a shift in dialogue, a shift in culture, and inclusion of LGBTQ individuals in conversations of diversity,” said Safe Zone Coordinator Frankie Flores.
Safe zone training is free for UNM faculty and students, but anyone can be trained. More than 3,000 people have taken the training in the past four years.
