Updated and new information provides college-bound LGBTQ students with comprehensive resources, support, and expert perspectives

June 13, 2017 (Seattle WA) - BestColleges.com, a leading provider of higher education information and resources, today announced its updated College Guide for LGBTQ students.

The expanded College Guide for LGBTQ students includes comprehensive information on several important topics including:

"For prospective college students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or queer (LGBTQ), it's crucial to find a college with a supportive learning environment where they can thrive," said Stephanie Snider, General Manager, BestColleges.com. "The expanded guide is intended to be an all-inclusive resource for perspective LGBTQ college students, providing information to help them make their important college choice and navigate the transition to college."

To gain a more personal and informed perspective, BestColleges.com interviewed industry professionals who gave their unique insight on the challenges and questions LGBTQ students may face when attending college. These experts come from a variety of fields, including mental health counseling and LGBTQ advocacy.

Participants include:

"We wanted to speak with the people who work directly with these students everyday, as well as some who have experienced college as an LGBTQ student themselves," added Snider. "Who better to offer advice and provide support than someone who has walked in those shoes?"
