The Queer Community Coalition aims to expand and enhance the vision for a more cohesive queer community at Colorado College. As a collaborative student-run organization Queer CC provides opportunities to engage in LGBTQ issues on campus and in the community.
There are distinct and important needs for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans students, but ‘queer’ is even broader than this. Queer CC provides safe spaces and opportunities for all students to explore gender and sexuality, to be allies and advocates, to identify with the queer community if they so choose, no matter their gender or sexual identity, gender presentation, or sexual relationships.
You never have to identify in order to participate in any student groups or utilize any on-campus resources.
View the Resources page of this site for a full list of on- and off-capus resources for students.
The following groups are all currently part of the Queer Community Coalition. If you want to get involved or if you have any questions, please contact Rosie Nelson for more information.
The mission of Equal is to create a safe, confidential, and social space for those individuals who identify outside of the heterosexual norm, the gender binary, or for anyone who is queer, questioning, exploring, or interested in issues of gender and sexuality.
Outreach and Education:
From the professional drag show in Shove, to discussions and panels about the intersections of current events, religion, social justice and queer issues, to the Queer Film Series, and LGBTQ youth mentorship opportunities, Queer CC is always looking for motivated and passionate students to lead new initiatives. For more information or to organize an event that YOU are passionate about, contact Kira Withrow and Rosie Nelson.
Queer Men’s Discussion Group:
A group for those who identify as queer men. For meeting times and more information contact Nathaniel Bookout.
LGBT Oral History Project Facebook:
In an effort to add of historical documentation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender experiences to the official College historical records, the Colorado College LGBT Oral History Project seeks to initiate a concerted and directed effort to collect, preserve, and make visible the personal narratives of non-heterosexual students, faculty and staff from this institution’s past and present. In entering into conversation with these ‘queer voices’ we hope to contribute to the ongoing personal and societal negotiations surrounding sexuality and identity. We welcome participation from anyone who has had a relationship with the College and who identifies as LGBTQ or an ally.
For more information or to get involved contact Andrew Wallace (‘12).
