Abstract: This paper will present three library-based programs reflective of staff-led, student-led, and collaboratively led outreach to 2SLGBTQ+ students at the University of Toronto. First, authors will describe the climate for 2SLGBTQ+ students at the University of Toronto and introduce a sample of higher education scholarship identifying a set of needs these students report at American and Canadian university and college campuses. Next, the three outreach programs will be treated as case studies with program goals, design, implementation, outcomes, and recommendations described. Finally, each program will be critiqued considering the needs higher education scholarship has identified. The programs to be discussed include a 2SLGBTQ+ film series, an original 2SLGBTQ+ themed escape game, and a weekly student-led co-working study session for 2SLGBTQ+ students. Keywords: LGBTQ; inclusion; innovation; equal rights
