International QLGBT Union at UCSD

In order to support and accommodate international students who identify as queer/transgender, we are creating International Queer Union at UCSD. While loving our amazing LGBT Resource Center on UCSD campus, some of the queer/transgender-identified international students, who have been to their events/programs, have recognized the necessity of a safe space specifically designed for queer/transgender-identified international students. As our experiences/observations tell, it is significantly challenging for queer/transgender-identified international students to blend into queer/transgender-identified domestic students, especially at quarterly/annual/single-day events/programs, due to cultural and language barrier. Therefore, our main goals are, 1) to provide a safe space where queer/transgender-identified international students can comfortably connect to each other 2) to bridge domestic and international queer/transgender students by reducing the cultural/language barrier. Domestic students who are interested in knowing international queer/transgender students and learning their issues will be invited as a part of our organization as well. Thus, IQU will primarily be a social group, and our programs/events will be designed accordingly.
