The Queen's Positive Space Program

You can become a participant and post a sticker by attending a Positive Space Information Session. New Info Session dates will be posted in January 2017.

Celebrating Sexual and Gender Diversity at Queen's since 1999

The purpose of the Positive Space Program is to identify and encourage the development of positive spaces within the Queen's Community, and to empower members of the Queen’s Community to be agents of positive change.

The program exists to help facilitate the celebration of sexual and gender diversity at Queen’s in all its manifestations, such that all members of the Queen’s community are affirmed and supported.

Sponsored by the students of Queen's University and these groups:
