The LGBTQ Student Union (LSU) is an organization of LGBTQIA+ students and their allies, established for the purpose of providing fun and safe queer community for LGBTQIA+ students at UMBC. We host many events throughout the semester to fulfill this goal, such as last semester's LGBTQ+ History Trivia Night, (in pre-pandemic times) a Fall Formal & Drag Night, (hopefully a revived) Coming Out Day Potluck, weekly/biweekly meetings, and much more! Feel free to reach out to one of our Board Members if you have ideas, questions, or just want to connect!
