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 lgbtq@umbc.edu!

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 lgbtq@umbc.edu 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 lgbtq@umbc.edu for more information.

Lavender Celebration

Trans 101
