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

Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPoC)

QTPoC is a student group that supports our queer and trans people of color in the LUC community. This newly developed group engages in conversations on the QTPoC experience at LUC and in Chicago. The closed group is dedicated to creating awareness and a safe, comfortable atmosphere for LGBTQIA people of color on campus and beyond.

Meeting Time: Once a month in the SDMA Lounge, Suite 116

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. Please e-mail Advocate at advocate@luc.edu for more information.
