Members of Spectrum gather at the LGBTQ Center.

The LGBTQ Resource Center supports the College's main student-run groups dealing with gender and sexuality. The groups work closely with the Center's direction in a joint mission to promote understanding and equality through education, mutual support and activism.

Spectrum: Gender & Sexuality Alliance

Spectrum works toward ending homophobia and transphobia through education and advocacy. We are dedicated to raising awareness about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, changing discriminatory policies and attitudes and providing support for our members. Everyone is welcome in the group!

(CQ)2: Connecticut College Queer & Questioning

(CQ)2 aims to build a supportive community for LGBTQ students. The group meets weekly to build social and community ties as well as to support each other in dealing with coming out and being out.

QPOC: Queer People of Color

QPOC is for students interested in exploring the connections between queer identity and racial identity through a social justice perspective. QPOC has grown substantially over the past year under the leadership of Anthony Sis and Karina Hernandez and is our community's newest and most energized student group. Email or call the Center for contact information.
