Queer Student Association (QSA)

Contact: Yves-Olivier Mandereau ymandere@risd.edu

The Queer Student Association (QSA) is dedicated to educating the RISD community on topics and issues relating to sexuality and gender. QSA works to create a safe campus that is open to all. We also work towards providing the queer community with social and educational events, inviting queer artists, designers, performers, activists, and sexual educators to campus. Each year, we try to provide an updated list of local resources from night clubs to local queer organizations and support groups to AIDS services. The QSA annually sponsors World AIDS Day during the Fall, RISD’s Queer Film Festival during Wintersession, and LGBTQ Week in April (which includes several events ending with the legendary RISD/Brown Drag Show).
