Core Programs

Welcome Week

Reception – An annual welcome reception for all of our new LGBTQ+ students to meet the community they’re about to become a part of! Check out your Welcome Week guide book for date and location or email!

Drag Show

Every year, UMBC’s LGBTQ+ student organization puts on their annual Drag Show! Featuring both students and professional performers, this show happens every spring and is open to all. Interested in performing? Contact for more information.

Queer Prom

Once a year, UMBC’s LGBTQ+ student organization throws a queer prom for the UMBC community. This gives a second chance to those who couldn’t bring who they wanted to their original prom, couldn’t wear what they wanted, or just want a repeat of a great time! Want to get involved with planning? Contact for more information.
