Colby College and the Pugh Center supports (LGBTQI) lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, transsexual, intersex queer, and questioning students to participate fully in college life.
Vision: Informed by the wider Colby vision of an inclusive and respectful campus, the Gender and Sexual Diversity (GSD) Program strives to create and inspire a community that: 1) challenges and works to end discrimination and oppression based on real and perceived differences in gender identity, gender expression, sex, and sexual orientation, and the intersections among these and other dimensions of identity; 2) promotes honest and sustained dialogue about difficult issues; 3) is committed to safety and justice for all its members.
