iSMSS hosts a number of events yearly to bring community together but most importantly fundraise for our youth programming. Through our events we come together to highlight the impact of our programming and work together with community members to help sustain the amazing programs and services we provide to the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Everyone is welcome and invited to participate - host an event in your area of campus, attend a workshop, walk in the parade, celebrate being 2SLGBTQ+, support your colleagues and friends!
