LGBQA TGNCI Student Life


At IWU, we use "LGBQA TGNCI" to represent a very broad spectrum of identities and self-understandings.  Our identities as underrepresented sexual minorities intersect with other identities grounded in race or ethnicity, faith, and social class, just to name a few.  Coming to know, understand and express who we are is one of the major tasks that confronts us as LGBQA TGNCI individuals, and you will find the freedom to explore and define yourself here at IWU.  Find below a few of the identity archetypes that we often refer to and draw upon in our self-definition and that fall within the framework of the LGBQA TGNCI community.
