About Us

whywefightWelcome to AU Queers and Allies! We are American University’s premiere LGBTQ pride group.  We strive to defend and protect the rights and interests of our members and the American University lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally (LGBTQA) community as a whole.  Queers and Allies is primarily made up of six communities which aim to represent different groups and individuals within the Queers and Allies community at large:

  • Allies Initiative
  • Queers of All Faith
  • Queer People of Color
  • Queer and Progressive Men
  • Queer Women’s Advocacy Community
  • Trans* Advocacy Project

These communities reach out to members of Queers and Allies in order to build a safe space for those who identity with the respective community. The communities hold social outings and events in order to build relationships and foster discussion. To become a member all you have to do is sign up for our listserv using the form below:
