Affinity Networks: Find Your Qmmunity!


Fall 2020 the Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity Launches Affinity Networks (via online platforms)

If you or someone you know is questioning, seeking community, or looking for resources, check out the OGSD Affinity Networks. Affinity networks are opportunities for Tulane students to come together around a shared identity and/or interest they hold. Affinity networks provide an affirming and brave space for individuals to discuss their needs, challenges, and successes. These groups are free and open to Tulane undergraduate and graduate students. Groups meet on campus and are peer and/or  faculty and/or staff-facilitated.

For more information regarding the specific affinity groups that are offered or if you would like to help start an affinity group, contact Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity Senior Program Coordinator Renee Bradley (she/they) via email at rbradley2@tulane.edu
