What is QSLC?
Hi, welcome to QSLC! Our mission is to establish community and increase visibility between students and LGBTQ+ friendly organizations at GMU. QSLC is advised and funded by the LGBTQ+ Resources Center, and we function as a direct link between students and the Center, as well as the wider campus community. We also collaborate with university offices, RSOs, and other campus based organizations to connect LGBTQ+ students with resources to better their time here at Mason. See below to learn more about who we are and what we do!

LGBTQ+ and Latinx Identities Conversations
Space where we held conversations about how LGBTQ+ identities intersect with Latinx identities and language.
the queerest Halloween costume party Mason has ever seen! We played games, chatted about how queer people have shaped Halloween celebrations, and ate candy.
Trans and Nonbinary Neurodivergency Roundtable
Hosted a community roundtable discussing what it means to be queer and neurodivergent. Collaborated with Disability Services to learn about what they do and how to be a good advocate for neurodivergent folks! We also had a special focus at this event on transgender members of the community, in honor of Transgender Awareness Week.
