LGBTQIA+ and Allies Group

About Us

This group is open to everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies. We will engage our LGBTQIA+ community in camaraderie and explore ways to positively impact our life experiences. We hope to educate our college and broader community about issues affecting LGBTQIA+ individuals and to influence strategies used for improving social justice. Meetings will only be open to group members to protect the privacy of those who are not Out.

Participation of Walsh LGBTQIA+ alumni in our group is particularly welcome, as your experience can inform us as to how we can best support LGBTQIA+ students and alumni.
