Event description
CUQSC is an annual conference that brings together Two-Spirit, queer, trans, intersex, and allied university students together!

About this Event

The Canadian University Queer Services Conference (CUQSC) is an annual conference that brings together Two-Spirit, queer, trans, intersex, and allied university students and university queer services workers together to share knowledge, build networks, and work to end heterosexism, cissexism, transmisogyny and transmisogynoir on Canadian university campuses.

NATIONAL KEYNOTE: ARIELLE TWIST

LOCAL KEYNOTE: MIRTHA RIVERA

The last CUQSC was held in Halifax, NS at Dalhousie University in 2016. Unfortunately, the conference has not taken place again since then. Generally, each conference is planned by an organization that is voted on by the previous conference’s attendees. Because the conference didn’t take place in 2017, no organization was voted to organize conferences following these years.

In January 2019, the UR Pride Centre for Sexuality and Gender Diversity located at the University of Regina began a plan to host a 2020 iteration of CUQSC. We’re hoping that we will be able to bring folks together in 2020 to restart CUQSC.
