GNO (Girl’s Night Out):
Girl’s Night Out is a safe social space for self-identified queer women. We’ll have snacks, news, and informal discussions about weekly topics (from flirting, to institutionalized homophobia, to random YouTube videos). If you’re new to Brown, new to GNO, or just haven’t attended a meeting in a while, you’re especially welcome to show up!

Brown Q+A: Queer and Asian

A monthly discussion group that meets the last Thursday of every month at the Third World Center Informal lounge, Q+A promotes active dialogue concerning the unique intersection of identifying as both LGBTQQ and Asian/Pacific Islander. We provide students with an environment that allows them to develop their identities, make friends and learn from each others’ personal experiences (all while eating delicious snacks)! Topics discussed range from interracial dating, stereotypes, exotification to Asian family and culture. All LGBTQQ Asian/Pacific Islander students are welcome to stop by and see what we’re all about!
