Gender and Sexuality

There is no right or wrong way to express gender or have consensual sex.  Because the majority of people identify as cis-gender and heterosexual, those who do not are sometimes made to feel as if their identities are inappropriate.  This pervasive idea can have damaging effects on LGBTQ students’ mental health, and UMSL Counseling Services offers assistance on both an individual level via counseling and a campus/community level via outreach.
