The Glow Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity
Glow is the oldest queer and trans* student organization in Canada. Run entirely by dedicated student volunteers, it offers a wide variety of discussion groups, social events, advocacy opportunities, awareness campaigns, resources, and information.
Come out and help Glow promote a healthy attitude towards all sexual orientations and gender identities. If you need someone to talk to, visit the centre during peer support hours for confidential peer support from trained volunteers.
Find out more about Glow events by following us on social media or subscribing to our mailing list below.
While our services are primarily targeted towards the campus community, we make every effort to include the community at large when possible. We encourage all students to be active in the queer & trans* KW community. The city is full of resources and events, many of which you can find by searching through the Rainbow Pages, a resource compiled by Spectrum
