Join Our Alumni Networks

There are several Penn State LGBTQ+ alumni networks. See below for the many ways to network between Penn State alumni who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, or as an ally.

Through our listserv, LGBTQ+ alumni receive notices about regional events, information about our work to make Penn State an inclusive place for all students, and updates regarding general campus news relevant to LGBTQ+ communities.

If you would like to be added to the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity listserv, please send an email to our listserv subscription service

Alumni Interest Group (AIG)
Alumni Interest Groups (AIGs) give alumni a creative way to stay connected with the people they knew during their student years at Penn State. AIGs also give alumni a way to interact and network with folks with similar interests after they leave Penn State. Join the LGBTQ+ AIG to continue your Penn State pride!
