LGBTQA Affinity Card=

Connect with Other LGBTQA Alums and Graduating Students

In November 2014, Dr. Michael Upton (MED '94) and Sanford Friedman ('73), collaborated with the UVM Alumni Association in founding the LGBTQA Alumni Affinity Group. The group encourages UVM alums to connect, network, organize events/outings, and communicate with one another for the purpose of mutual support in their professional and social lives. Additionally, this group of volunteers actively seeks proud alums to serve as leaders and professional resources for graduating students while dually contributing to the visibility and strength of LGBTQA presence and programming both on-campus and in alumni environments. For more information about affinity groups, click here.

QVM Digital Archive

Over the years, the LGBTQA Center has worked hard to maintain an archive documenting LGBTQA life on and around UVM's campus. In 2015 our students realized the importance of these archives and began the process of scanning and uploading them to our website. We are pleased to make these documents available and hope they both inspire and allow alums to ruminate and reflect on their college experience here at UVM. We actively seek out additional documents to scan and add to the archive and folks interested in providing materials for the archive should contact us at

ChangeMakers: LGBTQA History @UVM

If you're a UVM alum who has been involved in LGBTQ activism during your time at the university, we'd love to hear from you about your experience. We're creating the ChangeMakers wiki to collect and tell the stories of UVM's queer community.
