Office of Gender & Sexual Diversity

Welcome to OGSD


The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity strives for Queer & Trans Liberation rooted in anti-racism, accessibility, and decolonization. We serve students, faculty, staff, and alumni and are accountable to the Queer and Trans communities in New Orleans. We do this by: 

Fostering Community

  • OGSD works to create a community that is sustained by honoring our diverse values, contributions, and experiences while centering those who hold multiple marginalized identities in the LGBTQ+ community.

  • OGSD believes part of personal growth and creating deep connections requires accountability to yourself, your peers, and your community, especially in how you reflect on and navigate your privileged identities.
Identity Euphoria

  • OGSD provides resources, programs, and spaces for students, faculty, staff, and alumni to explore their identities in a community where we can unlearn the internalized messaging of homophobia, transphobia, and sexism.

  • OGSD advocates for Queer and Trans liberation at Tulane University through educational workshops, LGBTQ+ programs, and improving university policy and processes for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff.


We envision a Tulane campus community that is accountable and committed to unlearning and eliminating heterosexism and cissexism through an intersectional, racial justice, and decolonization approach. A campus community where the waves of inclusion are affirming of all gender and sexual identities.
