The LGBTQ Student Union (LSU) is an LGBTQ+ organization established for the purpose of advocating and providing community for the LGBTQ students at UMBC. We host many events throughout the semester to fulfil these goals such as our LGBTQ & Trans 101 Panels, Fall Formal, Drag Night, 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!
