Discussion Groups

Queer Discussion Group Facilitators

The queer discussion groups are weekly, hour-long groups focusing on topics related to sexual and gender identities. Groups for the 2017-18 academic year include:

  • BlackOUT Group: This group provides a space for all Black students who also identify as LGBTQ to explore the intersections of their identities. 
  • Queer & Asian (Q&A) Group: Welcome, all LGBTQ Asians! Here is your space to share your unique experiences in both the LGBTQ community and the Asian community, or just to meet others like you. Whether you're American-born or Asian-born, East or South Asian, you're welcome to join this Q&A.
  • Queer Students of Color Group: This group explores ways to celebrate our identities and navigate a predominantly white, hetero/gendernormative campus as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and/or intersex students of color.
  • Bi/Pandemonium Group: This discussion group explores the experiences of bisexual and pansexual people at Emory. Focusing on students, the group discusses the joys and challenges of being a bisexual or pansexual person on Emory’s campus. The group is open to all students that identify as a bisexual or pansexual.
  • Queer & Trans Latinx Group: This group provides a space for students of Latinx/Hispanic heritage that identify as LGBTQ to share their experiences and explore the intersections of their identities.
  • Trans-Forming Gender Group: This group is open to students who are questioning their gender or identify as trans in any way, including non-binary, genderqueer, agender, etc. 
  • Queer Men's Group: This group provides a space for students who identity as queer men to engage in weekly conversation and support. 
  • Queer Women's Group: This group was created to support anyone who identifies as a queer woman at Emory. This includes but is not limited to lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Emory community members. 
  • Aces and Aros Group: This student organization and discussion group supports students who self-identify on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrums, as well as all students who may be questioning.
  • Queerly Beloved Group:Open to students who identify as polyamorous (active or inactive).
  • Queer Grads Group: Queer Grads welcomes LGBTQ+ graduate students from all of Emory's schools to form community around the full spectrum of queer identities and queer life. Join us weekly for informal conversation around the intersections of our identities, current events, and more.
