Gender Diversity & Inclusion

We work to develop student leaders, campus networks and future actions to create a welcoming, inclusive school community.

Our vision includes campuses and a society free of 2SLGBTQIA+ prejudice, bigotry and hate. We aim to create a fully equitable community of all genders and sexualities that strives for knowledge, challenges barriers and seeks to empower agents of social change.

Our Values

We promote equity for all queer individuals, recognizing that to do so we must honour and affirm all personal identities that intersect and impact 2SLGBTQIA+ lived experiences in the world. In embracing equity, we seek to eradicate the powers that oppress, marginalize, make invisible, disenfranchise, harass, bully, intimidate, harm, abuse and/or discriminate against 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals and communities.

We nurture and develop a safe, vital, healthy and evolving community for all 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals, founded on integrity and collaboration while recognizing and valuing differences and seeking partnerships with our allies.

We embrace the full spectrum of 2SLGBTQIA+ experiences, viewpoints and contributions, celebrating the different nuances and cultural diversity created in the intersections of sexuality and gender with race, ethnicity, religion, class, ability, nationality and all other identity categories.

We empower innovative leaders who both inspire and are inspired by others as they work together to transform the world in a climate of respect and celebration for all 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals.

We celebrate the value of individuals of all sexualities and genders, and we welcome a wide range of opinions and ideas that are grounded in human dignity.


This is a student led, self-determined group going forward.
