The QCRC has events every month where you can engage with queer culture, histories, and community. We aim to use events to engage and build community amongst diverse groups of students, staff, and faculty, and adapt to new needs and interests of our community. You can keep up to date on upcoming events through Torolink and on Instagram @csudhqueer. Here are some examples you might be interested in learn more about:

Queer Geek and Gaymers Nights

Everyone is welcome to come celebrate and enjoy queer geek culture! Show and tell your favorite queer geek characters, narratives, games, and canon. Join in on queer trivia and group games. Meet new folks and bring old friends. Sometimes, we just gotta have fun!

Learn how to get involved and get in touch. Learn about LGBTQIA2+ services in the area. Share your story with people who can understand. Do a survey to inform our future space and programs.

We are honored to create an altar as a community and create space for one another.
