The Tufts Biomedical Queer Alliance is an organization dedicated to connecting and strengthening the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community of students and professionals at the Tufts University Health Sciences Campus in downtown Boston. We advocate for, support, and celebrate the gender and sexual minority (GSM) community on campus.
We represent students at the Medical, Dental, Sackler, Friedman, and PHPD schools as well as faculty, staff, and residents at Tufts Medical Center. Our activities range from social gatherings to forums and volunteer opportunities.
Many of our meetings and events are not exclusive to the queer community – we welcome everyone on the Health Sciences Campus to become members and allies, as we work to educate, advocate and support each other.
We strive to:
- Provide a voice for the queer community at the Tufts University Boston Campus.
- Foster a strong social and professional network of LGBTQ+ students and professionals.
- Educate about the special needs of the GSM community as patients and as providers.
- Coordinate with groups at other institutions to expand these ideas.
