Queer College Conference 2018

The Queer College Conference: December 1st, 2018 at Grinnell College

The mission of the Queer College Conference is to intentionally build relationships, resources, and advocacy skills for LGBTQ and allied students and faculty.

Building stronger local queer communities calls together LGBTQ and Allied students, support faculty and staff, community members, advocates, and local resource providers.  The Iowa Queer College Conference is open to all LGBTQ and Allied individuals interested in supporting queer college students.

If you don’t live in Iowa you are also welcome and encouraged to attend!
