Queerios Discussion Group

Topic: 2Spirit & Their Religion


The Center for Well-Being : 101

Date & Time

April 30, 2024, 5:00 pm6:00 pm


Queerios is a discussion-based group open to all that focuses on the experience of being both queer and religious or spiritual.  Each week will focus on a different topic!  We will start with a student facilitator-led activity, and leave plenty of room for discussion, dialogue, and community building.

Queerios welcomes participation of all kinds and disclosure of any identities is never required to join us.  This group is not focused on any particular queer identity or faith-based practice, and will feature topics that highlight a variety of identities and practices present in the UMBC student body.

Much like how many cultures have third genders, many indigenous American cultures have another gender identity separate from the binary, being 2Spirit. What are the experiences of 2Spirit people like? What is their significance in the religious beliefs of their cultures? This discussion has the answers! 

We welcome allies and community members who want to learn how to better support our students.

Snacks will be provided!
