What people are saying about them:
Q is an LGBTQ+ organization that provides a sense of connection and wellbeing in the absence of an official LGBTQ+ resource center at BU. Q hosts anywhere between 2-5 meetings per week on topics such as activism, education, socializing, and wellbeing. Q really makes an effort to be intersectional and inclusive of everyone such as QTPOC, especially considering the history of whiteness in the LGBTQ+ community. Their events in the past have included a drag show to raise money for an LGBTQ+ homeless youth shelter, queer-inclusive sex education, LGBTQ+ history lessons, queer comedy shows, ally trainings on how to better support different folx within the LGBTQ+ community (people of color, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault, trans folx, etc.), a weekly calling hour to call legislators, sign petitions to advocate for social justice, and more. Q also has compiled regularly-updated LGBTQ+ resource guides for LGBTQ+ BU community members, including LGBTQ+ mental health resources, sexual health resources, COVID-19 resources, and QTPOC-specific resources. I've had a really good experience at Q and feel like it's one of the few (if only) places on-campus I can rely on for a sense of safety, community, and education to further my own personal growth and wellbeing.
Q has provided me with the resources I need. They have created several extensive LGBTQ+ resource guides (mental health, sexual health, QTPOC-specific, COVID-19, etc.), which provide options for free therapy, support groups, financial support, etc. They also host wellness events throughout the year based on the diverse needs of the LGBTQ+ community at BU. Q truly builds community at BU and offers LGBTQ+ students a safe space that I have not been able to find elsewhere at BU.
