What is the acceptance on campus surrounding LGBT students? Does the religious background of Brandeis affect those students and their presence on campus?
Not at all!! Brandeis is extremely accepting, and there are plenty of openly LGBT students. The main LGBT club, Trisk, runs several sub-clubs for various groups, including one specifically for LGBT Jewish students, as well as clubs for QPOC and trans individuals. I’ve never had a problem with anyone using my preferred pronouns, and there is specific gender-neutral housing, which is where many gay and trans students room, if that’s a concern for you. It’s super accepting and I haven’t personally seen any hate or discrimination
