LGBTQI Student Groups

Student Group

Loyola University Chicago has two active LGBTQIA student organizations on campus.  The two student groups that are at Loyola currently are Advocate and QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Color). 

Below you will find a description of the group, contact information, and meeting times.


Advocate is a registered student organization (RSO) for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied Loyola University Chicago students. Through weekly general meetings and regular events we maintain a safe space for our members and cultivate a queer community dedicated to education, advocacy, and Loyola’s Jesuit Mission. With our partner organizations we work to increase the occurrence and quality of social justice programming that pertains to issues effecting queer Loyola students and the broader LGBTQA Community. If interested in joining us please come to one of our general meetings on Thursdays from 7–8 p.m. in McCormick Lounge, Coffey Hall, LSC or e-mail us at advocate@luc.edu.
