As the world moves towards a more digital platform, LGBTQ LIfe asks you to join us in returning to physical mail! Make a friend, be a friend. Send a postcard to a stranger in the JHU LGBTQA Community and receive one yourself! For our internationally located friends, we provide postcards through email. For those within the US, both digital and physical cards are available.

To participate, fill out this form by March 31.

Identity-Specific Meetups

Meet-ups are an informal opportunity for people to share their identities in a safe and friendly environment. These meetups are intended only for people who have that identity. We will be hosting meetups for the following communities: Asexual Spectrum, Bridges: LGBTQA Faith & Spirituality, Queer Men, Queer Women, Roots: LGBTQA People of Color, and Transgender and Non-Binary People. All will be held virtually.

LGBTQ Life Peer Mentor Program

The Peer Mentoring Program provides support to students who are seeking guidance from a peer in the LGBTQ community. Our mission is to help students develop their own positive sexual orientation and gender identity through peer-to-peer mentoring. Mentors provide a safe and confidential environment for mentees to explore, question, learn, and grow. This year, we’ll provide additional virtual support for mentors and mentees.
