Queer Resource Center (QRC)

The Queer Resource Center (QRC) is here to advocate for and provide resources to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and Allied (LGBTQIA+) students, faculty, and community.

The word queer can bring up a variety of emotions as it has been used in discriminatory and hurtful ways in the past. In spite of its past usage, today queer is a widely accepted umbrella term used to describe this community. Learn more.


We provide a safe zone and resources to anyone interested in learning more about queer related issues.


Flock is a monthly hangout for LGBTQ people and allies in Carbon County. It is a safe space to build community, get support, and meet other people. We are currently meeting via Zoom. Contact the QRC for meeting dates and times.
