About Queer West

Welcome to the website of Queer West - one of MIT's LGBTQ+ student groups! Queer West was founded in the spring of 2014 in order to make West Campus a more educated and welcoming place for queer students to live. We frequently hold social events and educational campaigns in order to create a friendly, welcoming community for queer students on West Campus.

The name of our group is Queer West, but that just means that our events are held on West Campus. All MIT students are welcome to come to our meetings and events!
