New Student Welcome

Each school year in August, the GLC hosts a welcome event that centers Elon’s first-year LGBTQIA students. We invite faculty, staff, and current students to help new students get connected on campus. We also share many of the resources and upcoming events from the GLC. Typically food is provided.


Partnered with Late Night at Elon, the GLC hosts an annual drag show each fall semester! We invite professional drag queens as well as student performers for the show. This extremely popular event is a staple LGBTQIA tradition on campus.

Fall & Spring Pride Fest!

Each semester the GLC hosts a large pride festival outside on campus! Enjoy games, snacks, and community as we collectively celebrate our identities!

Take Back The Night

Each semester the GLC hosts an opportunity for survivors of gender-based violence to come together and share their stories and learn about resources available to them.

Queer & Trans Art Showcase

Partnered with the Gender & Sexuality Living Learning Community, each semester the GLC hosts an art showcase to display LGBTQIA student art and performances. Microgrants through the GLC are available to help with the purchasing of art supplies for artists.

Trans Day of Remembrance

Every November the GLC hosts a vigil and a reading of names to honor all of those who lost their lives to anti-trans violence throughout the year. This is an event meant to both raise awareness about this serious issue and for our communities to come together to support each other.

Rainbow of Excellence

Each February the GLC hosts a social and dinner that will center the experiences of students who identify as ALANAM and part of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Join us in community building!

Kiki Ball at Elon

Every spring semester, the GLC & CREDE host a Kiki Ball! The Kiki Ball at Elon is a large celebration event of LGBTQIA ballroom culture and history that originates from Queer & Trans People of Color in the northeast.
