Beyond the Binary

Being an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community requires knowledge about the issues impacting the community, a deep respect for diversity and intersectionality, and a support system.   To that end, members of the Rainbow Action Committee (RAC) have created Beyond the Binary. Beyond the Binary will offer updated modular learning opportunities that will help TCC employees learn and refresh their understanding of various LGBTQIA+ subject areas to better support students and our college community.

Why is this work important?

Through this training, we hope to support both TCC students and employees by:

  • Upholding TCC’s responsibility to create a safe climate for all students
  • Helping students identify allies on campus
  • Making issues around sexual identity visible and positive
  • Creating a network of role models for mentoring and supporting LGBTQIA+ community members
  • Create a stronger sense of community through greater understanding of LGBTQIA+ culture and issues
  • Providing allies and advocates with resources

The Beyond the Binary programming is being created and will begin being piloted during the 2023-2024 academic year. If you have questions about the Beyond the Binary programming or would like to get involved, please reach out to the Rainbow Action Committee at
