Gay & Lesbian Life

Yale University is a welcoming community that holistically supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) people. The Queer Resource Center at Yale provides campus-wide support, and the OISS is available to provide guidance and answer questions on visas and other matters of concern.  While U.S. immigration does not yet recognize same sex marriage and obtaining a dependent visa is not possible, OISS can help you explore alternative visas that will enable your same-sex spouse to accompany you.

There is an official and enforced non-discrimination policy at Yale, and same-sex married partners have full access to the same benefits and privileges as different-sex married partners.   Although there are still many aspects in which LGBTQ people have not achieved full equality in the U.S., they have achieved full equality at Yale.
