LGBTQ2IA+ Students

In Student Experience, it’s important to us that our program, services, and spaces are safe(r) for everybody. No matter the colour of your skin, what you believe in, where you come from, how you got here, who you love, or how you choose to identify yourself, we welcome you. In Student Experience, we like to use the term LGBTQ2IA+, which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Asexual, and other identities that fall outside of cisgender and heterosexual paradigms.
