The following events are queer/queer-related events the ERC is typically involved with, whether by hosting or collaborating with other organizations on.

National Coming Out Day

Queer Community Reception

This event is typically held by the MultiCultural Center.  It allows queer students, staff, and faculty to come together so that they may meet each other, create new friendships, and learn who allies within the queer community are.


The other Homecoming dance where all are always welcome.

Trans Week of Remembrance

National Day of Silence

The Day of Silence is a national event that brings attention to bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT.  This year's Day of Silence falls on April 17th.

Night of Noise

After the Day of Silence, the Night of Noise is the time to break the silence, release tension, and celebrate.  This year's Night of Noise falls on April 17th.
