Welcome Week Reception

Drag Show
Every year, UMBC’s Freedom Alliance puts on their annual Drag Show! Featuring both students and professional performers, this show happens every spring and is open to all. Interested in performing? Contact freedomalliance@umbc.edu for more information
Queer Prom
Once a year, Freedom Alliance throws a queer prom for the UMBC community. This gives a second chance to those who couldn’t bring who they wanted to their original prom, couldn’t wear what they wanted, or just want a repeat of a great time! Want to get involved with planning? Head over to Freedom Alliance’s weekly meetings in UC 201-D, Thursday nights at 7:30.
Lavender Celebration
A celebration of the accomplishments of LGBTQ students, staff, faculty, and their supporters across campus and in improving the lives of the LGBTQ community on campus.
Trans 101
A panel of transgender UMBC students answering audience questions about their experiences. Bring your questions and willingness to learn!
