  • Alums interested in hosting a workshop or participate in a panel on topics such as Poetry, Asexuality, Queer Histories, ARt (non-poets), STEM panel, Wellness, Ability, Class, Relationships, Sex, Sexuality, Identity, Advocacy, Faith, and Diasporas and Internationalism.

IvyQ is an annual undergraduate conference focused on issues of gender, sexuality, identity, and leadership and is open to students throughout the Ivy League. Through meaningful and diverse programming and community-building, IvyQ aims to create an intercollegiate community of LGBTQ students and allies equipped with the skills to examine self-identities, value those of others, and understand the importance of intersectionality. While empowering all students to feel confident in their identities and their potential to instill positive change in their own lives and the communities they inhabit, IvyQ stresses the acknowledgment of our institutional privilege and seeks lasting social change for LGBTQ communities.
