Queer/Trans Students of Color Affinity Space



The Office of LGBTQIA Education & Engagement recognizes that systemic racism, homophobia, and transphobia disproportionately impact LGBTQIA students of color – and particularly Black LGBTQIA students. The Queer/Trans Students of Color Affinity Space is one way for the Office to support our LGBTQIA students of color.

Affinity spaces aim to empower students to share their emotions and experiences while reflecting on practices of healing and resiliency -- both of which provide the energy to continue acting for change and justice. These spaces are here for us to share our pain, our hope, and our joy together as a community.

We ask that individuals only participate in this affinity space if they self-identify as both BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, person of color) and as LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual).

The Office of LGBTQIA is looking for people intersted in a regular QTSOC Meeting.  Please contact our office and let us know you are interested in joining in the Spring semester.

Reach out to Office for more information or to join the space!
