Spectrum: Queer Student Alliance

As Utah Valley University's Spectrum: Queer Student Alliance serves as a supportive community for all individuals, no matter what sexual orientation or gender identity/expression they identify with.

This club strives to provide a safe social environment on campus, in the classroom, and off of campus for students, staff, and members of the surrounding community. To the best of its ability, the club will provide physical and mental health education, advocacy, and social support.

Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience is an annual observance that memorializes trans and gender nonconforming individuals who have lost their lives this past year due to anti-transgender violence, as well as honor the resiliency and power of our living trans family. This violence is directed overwhelmingly towards Black, Latina, and Indigenous women and femmes. We need to recreate our world, not only for survival, but to prosper. Please join the local transgender community - and those who are in solidarity with us - in imagining love-filled, abundant, and thriving trans futures.
