Bryn Mawr College Named The Most LGBTQ Friendly College Nationally

The City of Brotherly Love (and it’s suburban outskirts) continue to show why they are one of the leading cities for the LGBT community in the nation. 

Recently, the Princeton Review’s annual ranking of college campuses was released, with the Main Line area’s own Bryn Mawr College snagging the top spot of LGBTQ-friendly learning establishments in the United States. The ranking was included in the Princeton Review’s “Best 365 Colleges: 2020 Edition”, which compiles opinion 140,000 students who attended the considered colleges during the 2018-2019 school year. 


Bryn Mawr has a beyond expansive span of LTGBTQ programming. This includes Spectra Sexuality & Gender Education, which is a collaboration between both the student body & the Pensby Center for Community Development and Inclusion, which focuses on promoting a campus-wide understanding of gender and sexuality as identities existing on a continuum. Bryn Mawr also offers a gender and sexuality studies major, which features courses with names like “Gender and Science”. 

Francesca Krivitsky is a recent graduate of the Class of 2019 and spoke with Philadephia Gay News on Bryn Mawr’s recent well deserved accolades, stating exclusively “it was definitely the first time in my life I had so many gay friends, trans friends, which is unique. It’s definitely a place where you feel somewhat safer  to explore certain things and be more open just because of how many students there are around you who are also openly LGBT”.
