Queer Resource Center Weekly Support Groups

Hello from the QRC! We hope that your classes are going well, but we know that the start of the year can be a stressful time. The QRC’s support groups are here for you if you need to reach out to members of your community - we’re all here for each other, and community support is an amazing tool.

Many people already know about the groups, but are nervous about taking that first step through the doors. Common questions include - “Am I trans enough? Am I queer enough? Do I deserve to attend this group?” The answer is always yes. If you identify within these communities, you deserve to support and be supported by them.

If you have questions about the support groups, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Q! We hope you’ll attend if you need it.
