GLOBES is a diverse organization of faculty, staff, graduate students and administrators, whose mission is to advocate for, develop, and nurture UGA’s LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) communities.

In partnership with our allies – including students, alumnae/i, and local community members – we strive to educate, to improve campus climate, and to foster progressive change as we visibly work for social justice, equity, and LGBTQ rights at UGA and beyond.

Also, in case you’re wondering what GLOBES stands for, it is “Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual Employees and Supporters” BUT we know that name is not inclusive of our community so we’d like to make it clear that this organization encourages trans, queer, queer-questioning, and LGBTQ allies to participate, too. Our acronym is currently just a bit outdated!  If you are looking for LGBTQ friendly businesses and organizations in Athens, please click on the “Friends & Family” tab above.

Please give to the Annette Hatton Student Advocate Scholarship fund.  Each year GLOBES will award a scholarship to an undergraduate student who is doing extraordinary work in the LGBTQ community in Athens.  Please click on the “News”  tab above for more information

We are collecting donations for the scholarship fund.  If you would like to make a donation, please make a check out to GLOBES and mark “scholarship fund” in the notes section.  Donations can be mailed to  GLOBES, PO Box 735, Athens, GA 30603.
