We are diverse. We are inclusive. We believe everyone has the right to live, learn, work and play in a safe environment.

The Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity supports research, teaching and service work related to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression on campus and in the community. Supported by the Canada Research Chair in Sexual and Gender Minority Youth Issues, we develop inclusive and responsive policies, support evidence-informed practices and encourage the full and equitable participation of sexual and gender minorities on campus and in society.

We serve all members of the MacEwan community—students, faculty and staff. We can answer your questions about sexual and gender minority issues and support your ideas for initiatives that increase knowledge about and bring visibility to the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Call for presentations
We welcome presentation proposals from 2SLGBTQ+ community and grassroots organizers, non-profit organizations, researchers and students, heritage and archivist professionals, and government or policymakers working on any aspect of queer and trans+ histories in Canada. Presentations will take place at the National Queer and Trans+ Community History Conference May 3 – 4, 2024, hosted by MacEwan University.

Proposal deadline: Friday, December 15

I strongly believe that research can be used as a catalytic force to both serve and benefit the public good.
