(LOS ANGELES)—In the first event of its kind, college students from throughout Southern California, including from the San Diego area, will come together on Nov. 8 in an effort to promote inter-campus unity among LGBTQ collegians and connect those students with a broad array of community resources.
The LGBTQ College Rush is expected to draw more than 100 students and will be hosted by the Young Professionals Council of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, the University of Southern California LGBT Resource Center, and the University of California at Los Angeles LGBT Campus Resource Center. It will take place on Sunday, November 8, from 2-6 p.m. at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's Village at Ed Gould Plaza in Hollywood.
Students will be treated to free food and drinks, door prizes, tunes spun by popular DJs, and lots of surprises. They will also have the opportunity to learn more about the Center’s acclaimed LifeWorks program, which provides peer, group and one on one mentoring programs for LGBTQ youth to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
The event is free for all students with a valid college identification card and is open only to college undergrads. The Village at Ed Gould Plaza is located at: 1125 N. McCadden Place, Hollywood (one block east of Highland Ave., just north of Santa Monica Blvd.).
