Queer & Trans Collective

The Queer & Trans Collective aims to instill pride and resilience in our LGBTQ+ students through support, education and advocacy regarding sexual orientation and gender identity for the Colorado College community. We strive to develop an environment where queer spectrum students can freely be their authentic selves.

We envision a community that affirms, uplifts and celebrates queer identities and one that actively resist sexism, cissexism, heteronormativity, trans-misogynoir, and other intersecting forms of oppression. 

We are located in Worner 221, please visit our new QTC Gathering Space!
