Out on Campus
Marginalized Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Identities Peer Discussion Group and Events
What is Out on Campus?
Out on Campus is a confidential discussion group for Trent University students who are questioning their sexuality, gender identity or are in the process of coming out. Out on Campus is led by students who have already come out to their friends and family. Join us to listen to advice, ask questions and build relationships with a group of people who can relate to the experiences you are having.
We meet once a week in a confidential location to talk it out. Participants can safely share as much or as little as they like.
2021-2022 Meeting Time: Wednesdays from 5:00-7:00 pm. Meetings begin September 22 2021 in person - location TBA.
Information on how to join will only be available to participants who sign up with us. As much as we appreciate our allies, Out on Campus meetings are for queer/questioning students only.
If you would like to be added to our list to receive meeting information- please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Subscribe me'.
Monthly Movie Night
Out on Campus hosts Queer Movie Nights in October, November, February and March. Snacks will be provided and an optional discussion will follow the movie.

Other Queer Organizations at Trent
Trent Queer Collective (TQC) is a student group that focuses on organizing events that create social safer spaces for queer people. Their events are great spaces to meet other queer folk in the Trent and Peterborough community. It is also an opportunity to get involved if you are interested in organizing events.
Centre for Women and Trans People (CWTP) is an organization that runs events that challenge the oppressive ideas, actions, institutions and systems that impose limited understandings of sex and gender, and reproduce sexism, cisprivilege and transphobia. They are a great organization to volunteer with or attend any of their social justice events such as Self-Love Week in February.
Check out our document with an ongoing list of online queer resources for queer people and their allies including Trent's name change form, resources in the Peterborough community, healthcare at Trent, career resource for trans and non-binary folks and more!
We also offer a comprehensive guide to 2SLGBTQ+ terminology. This was last updated January 2021 and is by no means a definitive guide but a starting point for allies and queer students.
We also have a list of all courses at Trent University (both Durham and Peterborough Campuses) for the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 terms that discuss gender and sexuality. Download the file here.
