Center for Trans and Queer Advocacy Mission Statement
The Center for Trans and Queer Advocacy strives to be a catalyst in enhancing the
experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, questioning,
agender, asexual, aromantic, and intersex students, staff, and faculty at West Chester
University and beyond. While we explicitly name specific identities, we support all
people within LGBTQIA+ communities and in our efforts to move from allyship to advocacy,
we invite all WCU community members to actively engage in exploration and education
around the intersections of gender, sexuality, and other social identities. Through
visibility, outreach, programming, education, and community building, we work collectively
to create an environment where trans and queer people feel supported and validated.
We celebrate trans and queer identities through our values of intersectionality, social
justice, advocacy, and wholistic wellness, and we encourage all people to hold themselves
accountable and actively work towards a more equitable society.
