About the Caucus

The Queer Caucus (QC) of the Graduate Students’ Union is a political and social caucus for University of Toronto graduate students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ). We hold various events throughout the school year, including pub socials, games nights, karaoke, movie screenings and discussion groups. We seek to provide support for each other by providing venues to discuss issues that we encounter, as diverse LGBTQ graduate students, within and beyond graduate school.

A member-driven caucus, the QC seeks to promote social justice and community by providing venues for its members to come together with the goal of naming and fighting oppression, including homophobia, heteronormativity, transphobia and gender normativity, within and beyond the GSU and the University of Toronto. It does this by upholding anti-oppression as the approach that grounds our political and social activities. The GC’s commitment to dismantling both individual and structural forms of oppression means that we strive to work beyond the issues of sexual and gender normativity and recognize that these relate to and co-enforce other systems of oppression, among them racism, ableism, capitalism and religious discrimination.
