About the Club
We meet every Monday from 2:00PM- 3:00PM in room SU 204 (upstairs behind the cafeteria). The LGBTQA and Allies club is a reflection of the diversity on campus and we pride ourselves of our unique blend of activism, acceptance and social interaction. We are a Safe Zone for people of all sexual identities and genders to talk openly and honestly. We value diversity of all types: age, body, opinion, and of course sexual orientation and gender identity.
The LGBTQA Alliance works extensively with the Palomar College Committee to Combat Hate (PC3H) and we have partnered to cosponsor events, establish campus-wide Safe Zones, and to improve our academic environment and our students’ and staff’s well-being through education, engagement, and empowerment. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions for improvement, so stop by, send us an email, or add us on Facebook. Tell us your story!

The Alliance is active both on and off campus with a number of events scheduled or in the planning stages. Check out the calendar, sign up for the email newsletter, follow us on Facebook, or check the web page for up to date info! If you’re looking to volunteer and make a difference, we need you! Are there LGBTQA issues you want others to know about or want to be addressed? Are you tired of homophobia on campus? Then come participate, make friends, empower yourself, and make a difference together!

The Alliance will host many events on and off campus throughout the year in addition to our regular meetings. Our events range from good old-fashioned activism to fun social events. Events in the past have included: Halloween Escape, Coming Out Day, LGBTQA Movie Nights, and Health & Wellness Events.

Of course, the purpose of a college education is to become educated! By advocating for honest dialogue, educational resources, safe learning environments, and more in-depth LGBTQA studies on campus, the  intends to help make your college education more enriching and balanced.
