This research looked at the current campus climate for non-monosexual people and whether or not non-monosexual students felt understood and supported through current LGBTQ programs, services, and resources on their campus. The purpose of this research was to understand how LGBTQ centers/offices/services could best serve non-monosexual student populations. Ten undergraduate, mostly female identified, non-monosexual students at a large research intensive institution in the south participated in this basic qualitative research study. This research showed that non-monosexual students’ needs are not entirely being addressed through current programs, resources, and services on campus. According to this research, students were able to find spaces that were affirming to their identities as LGBTQ, yet they still had to learn to navigate all of the mircoaggressions and biphobia that exists both within and outside of the LGBTQ community. What this research showed is that LGBTQ centers need to be more attuned to the needs of non-monosexual populations and engaged in purposeful programs, education, and outreach aimed at non-monosexual populations.
