Message from the Chair

Hi everyone, and welcome to the GLBTQ Leadership Council (GLC) at Boston College! GLC strives to create a more open and inclusive campus for all BC undergraduate students. This year, we plan to focus on fostering a stronger community among the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and ally students at BC, while remaining strong advocates for these students in the Student Assembly and with the administration. We will continue to put on GLC's traditional events, such as National Coming Out Week (NCOW) and Spirit Day, and will also expand our programming into new areas by looking at the intersection of sexual orientation and other aspects of our identities, like race, socioeconomic status, and religion. We will also be revamping Queer Peers and expanding the GLBTQ Undergraduate Society (GUS) to provide better support and resources for GLBTQ students on campus.

I encourage everyone to attend our events and open meetings, and to consider joining council. If you have any questions about GLC or are looking for someone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me!
