Grad Students Get Together at U of T....
For many years LGBTQ graduate students have gathered in various ways and configurations to meet, socialize and explore various academic experiences. Typically, it is the students themselves who rally at the GSU pub or other locations on campus. Beginning in 1998 there was an informal group call "OUT of the Carol" - organized by a couple of students, which eventually became dormant. In 2002 (or so) graduate students organized a grad chapter of LGBTOUT.
For several years the grad chapter met monthly at the GSU Pub led by graduate students volunteering their time to host the evening. The leadership began to dwindle in 2006-2007 and in 2008 there were no volunteers stepping up to organize these gatherings. In response to this gap, the Sexual & Gender Diversity office hosts a reception for graduate students and faculty. Interested in making time for this to happen? Please contact us and we will be happy to support your initiatives on campus.
