LGBTQA Student Groups

Out in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (oSTEM) is a national student society dedicated to increasing the participation of people who identify with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or ally (LGBTQA) communities in disciplines related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). Events are held every two weeks. Email for more information or find us on our oSTEM Facebook page.

The JHU Athlete Ally Chapter advocates for, and provides a voice and community for, LGBTQ-identifying student-athletes on campus and their allies. The culture of athletics has not always been the most welcoming when it comes to athletes who may identify as part of the LGBTQ community. This group provides a space for these individuals to feel supported and connect with others who share similar experiences, while simultaneously finding ways to change the culture of athletics to be more open and accepting of a variety of diverse identities.
