Loud & Queer



The mission of Loud & Queer is to empower second year and beyond LGBT and allied students to lead authentic lives, to challenge systems of gender and sexuality, and to work for social justice by fostering a community of learning, celebration and solidarity.

L&Q is for LGBT and allied students who are interested in building community, connecting with the LGBT Resource Center and exploring how the systems of gender and sexuality impact their lived experiences.

Through participation in L&Q students will…

  • connect to the LGBT Resource Center 
  • build community with peer students
  • learn skills for self-care, healthy relationships, academic success and life after graduation
  • develop a greater understanding of the systems of gender and sexuality
