Intimate partner and sexual violence is not restricted to one particular community. Intimate partner and sexual violence can occur in any community. If you are a member of the LGBTQ community and believe you have been a victim of intimate partner violence and/or sexual assault, you are not alone.

Bard Campus Clubs

A safe space for queer, questioning, or allied students. We work closely with the Trans Action Initiative and are involved in both political and networking activities. Straight but not narrow allies are always welcome!
This club is a space created to center the lives and experiences of the queer and gender-nonconforming people of color both on Bard's campus and beyond. It's a place for conversation and action. It's a place that recognizes and affirms the lives of those whose lives are too often forgotten and erased. Though it was made intentionally to elevate the voices of QTPOC, allies and accomplices are welcome, but only with the understanding that your voices will not be centered and that you are there to learn and support.
The Trans Life Collective is a student and faculty organization working to create an environment that is accepting and comfortable for individuals of all gender identities. In the past, we have advocated gender neutral spaces in bathrooms and housing, we were instrumental in adding gender identity and expression to Bard's Anti-Discrimination Policy, we held film screenings, hosted trivia events, panels, and performances/workshops, supported grassroots education via teach-ins, organized a library of books and films for the Bard community, and developed educational materials for students and staff. All are welcome to attend our weekly meetings.
