Gender & Sexuality

“We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.”George Takei, Actor/Director/Activist


This community offers a space for people who identify with or are interested in the diversity of human gender and sexuality, as well as with its trials and opportunities. Because our personal experience and upbringing play a role in how we view and define gender and sexuality, we have much to learn about how we can support each other to reach our goals based on our diversity. This community welcomes you to be yourself and learn about others in respectful ways.

The Gender & Sexuality Identity/Affinity Community brings together faculty, staff, alums, and community members who understand that the social production of gender is inseparable from that of sexuality, race, class, nationality, faith, ability, and other categories of difference. This community is designed as a safe space to explore, learn, reflect on, and support each student’s path during their academic development at Drew University. This community is here to help each student reach their goals to the best of their abilities.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support students’ pathways to development, connect with students to offer insight and support, and inform the broader community of internships, community engagement, or job opportunities.
