OPIRG Kingston exists to serve as a training ground for concerned citizens to recognize and engage the problems of society. OPIRG has been in Kingston since 1992.

Positive Space Program
A Positive Space program brings visibility and support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans individuals. A Positive Space indicator (sticker) on an office door, workspace, or living space identifies the occupant as accepting and being supportive of these communities. Participants in the program answer questions, provide assistance, suggest resources, and refer individuals to appropriate offices and services. Positive Space campaigns have been established at other universities (University of Toronto, University of Calgary, and York University). Three groups sponsor the Queen's program: OPIRG Kingston, the Human Rights Office, and the Education on Queer Issues Project (EQUIP).
