Queer to Slay Support Group Meetings Queer to Slay is a peer to peer support group for LGBTQ+ students. This group is a safe, convenient, and confidential space where students can discuss or get support on certain topics such as:

  • Coming out
  • Dealing with interpersonal, religious, or family rejection
  • Resources
  • Help with workplace or school challenges
  • Dealing with internalized homophobia
  • Finding an accepting community

Queer to Slay Support Group meetings are held regularly in the LGBTQ+ Office.


Queer-to-Slay is a campus support group organized and ran by the LGBTQ+ Office’s Graduate Assistant Destiny Tomblin. This service is for LGBTQ+ individuals who want to join in a safe and welcome space to talk about their day-to-day lives, as well as their experiences as a part of the LGBTQ+ community. Destiny is trained in confidentiality and HIPPA, so all things discussed in Queer-to-Slay are confidential to those in the room. It is also an educational group, where members learn about psychological concepts and coping mechanisms through group talk and learn to apply these concepts to their real life situations. Destiny’s contact information can be found on the “contact us” page. If you would like to receive email updates regarding Queer-to-Slay, please send a request to Destiny via the email listed on “contact us.”

Meetings for the current semester have not been scheduled. Once a day and time has been chosen, it will be sent via email as well as added here on this webpage.
