The Advocate College Guide

by Shane L. Windmeyer




Based on student demand, the Advocate magazine and publisher Alyson Books have partnered to produce The Advocate College Guide for LGBT Students.  With advice from campus officials and LGBT college students -- the experts themselves - this easy to use guide is the perfect companion for the first generation of out LGBT students.

This new guide profiles the 100 U.S. institutions with the top “Gay Point Average” on critical LGBT issues such as:

  • Gay-affirmative policies
  • Campus events
  • Queer student perspectives
  • Housing for LGBT students
  • Local gay hangouts
  • Gay-friendly support resources
  • Queer studies

THE ADVOCATE COLLEGE GUIDE FOR LGBT STUDENTS is the product of nearly 5,000 online interviews with LGBT students and 500 online interviews with faculty and staff from campuses across the country. Not only does the guide rank the best LGBT campuses, but for the first time, you also hear the reasons why from the experts themselves—LGBT college students.
“Finally! As the first generation of ‘out’ LGBT students prepares for college, they now have the information they need to choose the right campus....The product of thorough and thoughtful research, this guide will be an invaluable resource for LGBT students, their families, and anyone who wants a progressive campus.”—Kevin Jennings, Executive Director, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and editor of One Teacher in Ten

This books is enormously helpful for the glbtq student and parents conducting their college search. It isn't fully comprehensive, as there are additional glbtq-friendly schools not included. One example is Hampshire College, which has restrooms labeled 'identify as male' (allowing for transgender students),and domestic partner faculty-staff benefits, and isn't listed in the book. This is minor, however. It is a great resource and the only one of it's kind for glbtq students and their families.
