What is the Queer Affinity Space?  

The Queer & Ally Affinity Space is an inclusive community intentionally focused on supporting, educating, and celebrating queer identifying students. Such students will engage in educational experiences that highlight their personal identity development, queer history, the context of being queer in STEM, and how to serve as a leader in a hegemonic field.

We use the term “Queer” as an umbrella term that includes all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual, and +) community. As such, all room assignments and restrooms will be classified as ‘Gender Neutral,’ meaning anyone, regardless of their biological sex, their gender identity, and their gender expression, may room with whomever they like and use the restroom on the hall.

For more information on the various terms encapsulated within our definition of queer, please visit NYC’s Gay Center (called “The Center”): https://gaycenter.org/about/lgbtq/ 

Non-queer identifying students are welcome to live in the Queer & Ally Affinity Space as an ally. We define the term “Ally” as non-queer identifying folx who are accepting of queer identifying folx and are willing to support and advocate for queer identifying folx.
