Annual Events

The Office of BGLTQ Student Life hosts a variety of signature events each year. The Office's signature events aim to build community in both social and academic ways to ensure the visibility and support of the BGLTQ student community at Harvard College.

National Coming Out Day Open Mic - The Quoffice's yearly event for National Coming Out Day is an artistic showcase centered around BGLTQ+ identity. We aim to celebrate the diversity of experiences and narratives in our community through student poetry, visual art, music, and dance.

Trans Day of Remembrance Vigil - Each year, the Quoffice organizes a vigil for Trans Day of Remembrance in order to honor the memory of the trans and gender non-conforming lives lost each year, raise awareness of the violence that affects the trans community, and celebrate their continued resistance.


BGLTQ+ Faculty Mixer - The BGLTQ+ student-faculty mixer provides an opportunity for College students to socialize and network with BGLTQ+-identified faculty, staff, and administrators outside of a strictly academic setting. 

Winter Dinner - The annual winter dinner is an opportunity for socializing and reflection on the past semester during exam period.
