We offer an anonymous forum-style meeting place for discussion of LGBTQ+ topics affecting the community at large. We also offer a plethora of campus and community-wide events for the distribution of information and celebration of culture to the Carolinian community, raising awareness of LGBTQ+ people and issues, promoting acceptance and providing safe resources for all peoples who are members of sexual and gender minorities.
