There are several conferences geared towards our queer and trans* community. Many are identity based and we encourage all of our campus community to partake in these opportunities. If you or your organization would like to send a delegation to a conference please contact the commission in order to discuss how the commission can best help you.

Queer & Asian Conference
Every year, the queer and Asian conference (QACON) brings queer Asians and allies from across the nation to participate in engaging workshops, keynote speeches by prominent activists, performers, scholars, performances from our talented community, and so much more. We are proud to be hosting the 12th conference this year and we invite you to join us for three days of existence and resistance!
