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.

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.
Closed meetings (limited to trans and gender-nonconforming individuals) are every Monday at 6pm in the LGBTQ Resource Center.
More information will be available in the fall!
The purpose of Aces & Aros is to create a brave, supportive, and inspiring space for asexual and aromantic people. Aces & Aros is for those who feel an extra strain for being marginalized within the LGBTQ community. 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.
