The website eCollegeFinder has released a list of the most LGBTQ-friendly schools in each state, and has deemed Emory to be the most-friendly in Georgia.

According to the website, Emory provides training on violence prevention and counseling and psychological services.

“In addition to individual attention, the school hosts events including the Emory Pride Drag Show,” the website says. “Since 2004, the show has brought both students and faculty to the stage to perform their hearts out.”

Proceeds go toward supporting the university’s LGBTQ’s support programs. The school also has gender-neutral housing. To see the full list, click here.

Interim director of Emory’s Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Life Danielle Steele told WABE that the school has been providing support to these students for some time. To read that story, click here.
