Weekly Discussion Groups

Last Updated: 2022-09-22
The Pride Collective’s discussion groups revolve around fostering diverse discussions and queer community building. These weekly drop-in groups are informal, low-commitment, and easily accessible to all students, faculty, and community members. Each group meets in the Pride Lounge, NEST 2103. 

 

Each discussion group will use the Collective's Safer Space Guidelines as a framework for creating their own discussion and space guidelines. Questioning folks are welcome!

ALL GROUPS START IN SEPTEMBER. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED, FEEL FREE TO JUST SHOW UP!

*NOTICE

All discussion groups have resumed in person. The option to participate online via discord or zoom is still available. Please join the discussion group discord channel for further details. Our discord is at https://discord.gg/6kkD2BH
