Discussion and Information
Unmasking Masculinity is a peer-led discussion group that provides participants with a unique opportunity to share experiences and support others within the LGBTQIA community in a safe and confidential environment. We will offer themed discussions on coming out, relationships, gender identity and new group topics as interest emerges. This group is for any students who wish to discuss social and personal issues falling on the male/masculine spectrum, including women, non-binary and trans students, gay and bisexual men, queer folks, etc.
Contact the group facilitators -- Haiden Baier for more information on the group. Please note that Unmasking Masculinity is a peer group and that there is no mental health counselor or other accredited professional available.
Support and Discussion Group Policy
All Unmasking Masculinity participants must be currently enrolled in classes at the University of North Florida. Special considerations will be made for college students at FSCJ, JU, or another college/university. One-time exceptions may be made for visitors by contacting Kaitlin Legg, Director, at least one week prior to preferred visit. A one-time exception is not necessarily guaranteed.
The primary mission of these groups, as well as the UNF LGBT Resource Center, is to support LGBTQIA college students. Due to increasing attendance and need, the Center can no longer support community members within social groups. In addition to the scope of the Center’s mission, social groups also must follow safety and confidentiality agreements and safe space guidelines, which restrict most areas of service to college students and the campus community.
