Emerging Connection: A Queer Pen Pal Project! A way to connect with other LGBTQ+ folk from across the nation.

This project was born out of the desire to build Queer community and connection during this time of social distancing. Queer history has shown us that community is one of the ways we survive during challenging or uncertain times. LGBTQ+ resource centers across the Nation have come together to connect our Queer students with one another. We hope the relationships that blossom from this program help provide a sense of connection, belonging, and solidarity to our LGBTQ+ students across state and institutional lines.

You have the option of being paired with someone from the Augsburg community, or someone from a partner institution:
Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life
Gender and Sexuality Center at the University of Texas Austin
UNLV Student Diversity & Social Justice
UMD Office of Diversity & Inclusion
Central Michigan University Office of LGBTQ Services & Gender Equity

Shout out to all these institutions for helping make this possible!
