Queer Liberation Front (formerly Triangle Coalition)
Queer Liberation Front – formerly Triangle Coalition — is Mizzou’s longest-standing LGBTQIA student organization. Build community, meet friends, make change, educate our campus, jump in (or avoid altogether) glitter explosions, dance (or not), play games (or don’t), eat ice cream (or sorbet), plan events, attend programming, travel to student conferences, join the leadership, HAVE FUN! QLF is what you and your fellow students want it to be. Get involved!
If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
Queer Trans People of Color (QTPOC)
The purpose of the Queer Trans People of Color is to create a safe, supportive and inspiring space for queer and trans people of color. QTPOC is for those who feel an extra strain for being both LGBTQ and a person of color. Our goal is not only to support the individuals who find themselves at the mentioned intersection of identities but also to educate our campus and communities on the struggles and experiences we encounter.
We are in no way an exclusive group: people not a part of the LGBTQ community or of color are more than welcome to be a part of our community.
Meetings consist of community building; being our honest, true and beautiful selves in a safe and respectful space; and event programming and planning for how to educate our campus and communities.
To get more info, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Oasis is a new trans-focused student org which aims to include all who identify outside of their gender assigned at birth, while uplifting the most marginalized in the community through the promotion of intersectionality in conversation. We will facilitate discussions on different topics and organize a taskforce that addresses the concerns of trans students on campus.
For more information, feel free to email email@example.com.
Aces & Aros
The purpose of Aces & Aros is to create a brave, supportive, fun, and inspiring space for asexual and aromantic people. Our goal is to bring together people on the aromantic and/or asexual spectrum (along with questioning folks and people who are just curious) not only to support these individuals but also to educate our campus and provide an opportunity to socialize and have fun with like-minded people.
We are an open organization, meaning anyone on campus can join us for meeting! We meet Mondays at 7pm in the LGBTQ Resource Center.

Mizzou Queer Media Association
The Queer Media Association aims to provide a space for LGBTQ+ identifying people entering journalism and communication fields at the University of Missouri. QMA meetings are a safe and secure environment for folks to share their unique experiences as queer media students. The QMA operates under four key principles: advocacy, community, education, and professional development.
Greek Allies works specifically within the Fraternity and Sorority community here at MU. Focusing on the core values of each chapter and organization, especially on their commitment to brotherhood or sisterhood, Greek Allies finds allies to the LGBTQ community in each chapter to educate the community, and to empower those members of the community who are both Queer and Greek. Greek Allies stands to educate and foster a positive environment, moving beyond tolerance to active support.
Membership is open and welcoming. Join us and help make all of Mizzou a safe and welcoming environment for all.
