Queer Campus Groups
There are many groups for queer students across The Claremont Colleges. The LGBTQA groups listed on this page are not affiliated with the QRC. Serving different campus communities, these groups work together to build LGBTQ community as well as provide support and an inclusive space on their campuses.

The Queer, Trans, Plus Student Alliance strives to create an open and inclusive safe space on Pitzer’s campus for those who identify as Queer, Questioning, and Trans students from the LBGTQIA+ community in our search for liberation.
