LGBTQ+ Student Organizations
Louisiana Trans Advocates aims to strengthen and support transgender and allied communities across Louisiana through social support, education, empowerment, and advocacy. The LSU chapter aims to make resources and events more accessible for students.
OUTlaw was formed to create a climate at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center in which it is safe and comfortable to be openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or an ally (“LGBT”). OUTlaw seeks to create an atmosphere of acceptance and comfort, instill justice, and combat discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. The organization exists to provide support and a sense of community while simultaneously engaging in political activism and advocacy.
Qroma is an organization which seeks to support the campus' lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students of color through service, programming, and social outreach. This student organization hopes to address the struggles that are paired with being queer students of color on LSU's campus. In having representation and a presence on campus, our goal is to tackle ongoing issues, create a safe environment, spark conversations, provide social outlets, STD/HIV-AIDS testing, and suicide and drug prevention.
Spectrum empowers and supports LSU lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and asexual/aromantic (LGBTQA+) communities as well as their allies, by providing social support, education, programming, and opportunities to participate in campus and community activism. Spectrum is an organization with over 100 active members, and has successfully organized programs, classroom panels, campus-wide forums, lobbying campaigns at the state legislature, and a statewide conference (the Louisiana Queer Conference, or LAQC). Whatever your interest is in the LGBTQ community at LSU, Spectrum has a place for you!
