In lieu of featuring a local gay sports club or social group I wanted to highlight the work being done by HBS LGBT Student Association in conjunction with HKS LGBTQ Caucus, HLS Lambda, & QueerEd, all of which are officially recognized student-run organizations of the Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Law School, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Each year these groups at Harvard convene to address issues that impact our community. The conference is open to the public and this year will include comedian and writer Travon Free, CEO of The Travis Project, Amit Paley, and Justice Mary I. Yu from the Washington Supreme Court to name a few people. They will have open discussion with topics ranging from Queer Media Voices to Out in the Workplace to something called “Vogue-ology Workshop”.
Students comprise a significant percentage of Boston’s population and if you are attending one of the 60+ area universities and colleges I would encourage you to get involved with the local LGBTQ group. If you are looking for help organizing such a group, I would recommend reaching out to one of the organizations mentioned above or at another nearby university or college.
I want to feature the LGBTQ groups and organizations that help people connect and enrich Boston’s gay life. If you’d like to have your club / team featured, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via FB messenger.
