Social Groups

Asexuality Social Group

An Asexual is someone who experiences little to no sexual attraction. While celibacy is a choice, asexuality, like other orientations, is inherent and therefore not a choice. Asexuality has nothing to no with sexual orientation and people who are asexuals can identify with a sexual orientation (Heterosexual, Homosexual, Bisexual, etc). The Asexuality Social Group is for asexuals and their allies for social support, learning and fun.

Bisexual and Pansexual Social Group

A Bisexual is someone who is sexually attracted to individuals of the same gender as themselves and individuals of different genders/gender presentations from themselves. A Pansexual is someone who is sexual attracted towards individuals not based on gender. The Bisexual and Pansexual Support Group is for bisexuals, pansexuals, and their allies for social support, learning and fun.

Transgender Social and Support Group

Transgender is an umbrella term that describes a person whose gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned with at birth. The Transgender Social and Support Group is for Transgender people and those questioning their gender for a supportive and learning environment.

Pride Center UWGB Alumni Group

The Pride Center UWGB Alumni Group is an opportunity for UWGB Alumni to stay in touch after graduation. Many UWGB Alumni did not have access to a Pride Center, which opened at UWGB in 2012, but would like to meet and stay in contact with UWGB Alumni who are LGBTQ or allies today. For more information on how to stay in touch and involved, take a look at the UWGB Pride Center Alumni Facebook page at or contact Pride Center Coordinator Stacie Christian at christis@uwgb.edu.

Pride Employee Resource Group

The Pride Employee Resource Group (Pride ERG) started in Fall 2015. Employee Resource Groups, sometimes known as Affinity Groups, are often available within larger organizations as a means to meet other like-minded individuals who support a common goal. As the first ERG at UWGB, the Pride ERG provides opportunities for LGBTQ employees to meet with each other once a month in a relaxed off-campus location in order to provide opportunities for socialization and support for UWGB LGBTQ employees. Supporting the goals and programming of the UWGB Pride Center is another focus of this group. For more information on how to participate in the Pride Center ERG, please contact either Stacie Christian at christis@uwgb.edu, or Joanie Dovekas at dovekasj@uwgb.edu
