Join Unity–GLBTQ and Christian Group Tonite at 8pm

Are you queer/trans and Christian? Join Unity, a new student group on campus, for our first meeting this Thursday, October 6th, at 8pm in Usdan 136! We are a group of questioning and curious queer/trans Christians that gather over dessert to build community and share about the joys, questions, and difficulties we live as queer/trans Christians. Our first meeting will be an information session, so feel free to drop by if you want to get a sense of what the group will be like. Membership in this group will be confidential and is specifically for students who identify as LGBTQ or questioning.  If you are interested and can’t make it to this first gathering, please reach out to Jenny to learn more about when/where future meetings will take place at
