The Queer Alliance

The mission of the Queer Alliance is to facilitate the building of a diverse, inclusive, visible and active queer community at Brown. The QA is an umbrella organization that is the hub of queer-related organizing efforts on and off campus. The QA is divided into three broad departments of programming: Community, Outreach and Advocacy. It is the job of the Department Chairs to encourage and facilitate queer leadership and organizing on campus to serve the spectrum of needs and identities in the queer community.

GLAAM - LGBT Med Students

GLAAM is a student organization geared towards improving the healthcare for lgbtq people and is a place where lgbtq medical students and their allies work together to make their own voices heard in the medical community.  We aim to address the health concerns specific to the lgbtq community and recognize that unbiased healthcare is a patient's right. In addition, lgbtq-identified providers face a different set of concerns than those being addressed by mainstream medical education. GLAAM is dedicated to dialogue, advocacy and action on these fronts. For more information visit the GLAAM website.
