The LGBTQA Center@UVM maintains two listservs designed for LGBTQA students, staff, and faculty at UVM and for everyone who shares a commitment to the elimination of all forms of discrimination, especially discrimination on the basis of sexuality and gender identity:
firstname.lastname@example.org: LGBT regional and local events, news, and discussion e-mail list, as well as all posts that appear on the “lgbt-announce” e-mail list. You must be subscribed to “lgbt-discuss” in order to post to it.
email@example.com: an announcements-only list. This list has much less traffic than the “lgbt-discuss” e-mail list and is intended only for LGBTQA events at UVM. This list is managed by the LGBTQA Center. You don’t have to be subscribed in order to submit a message for approval. Each message is reviewed and posted to the list if it meets the list criteria described above.
firstname.lastname@example.org: a listserv for LGBTQA alumni.
GLBTA-UVM@list.uvm.edu: The Free To Be student club runs a student-only e-mail list. For more information about this list, e-mail
Free to Be.
QPOC@list.uvm.edu: a list for people who identity themselves as queer people of color. For more information please visit the QPOC webpage.
All the messages that are sent to the “lgbt-announce” e-mail list are also sent to the “lgbt-discuss” e-mail list. Thus you will want to be on one or the other of these lists, not both.
