Brown TBGALA is the Transgender, Bisexual, Gay and Lesbian Alumni Group at Brown. You can become a member of TBGALA visiting the TBGALA website or by updating your profile through the Brown Alumni Relations website.
There are various ways Alumni can support the LGBTQ Center. We have opportunities for Alums to serve on Advisory Boards and Working Groups. In addition, TBGALA is always looking for volunteers and leaders who would like to start a TBGALA chapter in their area. If you sponsor LGBTQ Alumni events in your home town or city and you would like to let recent grads know about your events we can post them here on our website.
During Commencement/Reunion weekend we co-sponsor an Alumni Reception with the Alumni Relations Office. Please check our calendar in May for the most up-to-date information. We also hold "Back To Campus" events that we would like to invite you to. If you are interested in getting on the list to receive these invitations please contact us and we will add you to our TBGALA email list.
If you would like to make a gift to the LGBTQ Center you can contact the Coordinator, Kelly Garrett, to discuss our specific needs. To provide some examples, your gift can help fund:
- furniture, computers, books and DVD's
- student workers
- student scholarships
- student travel to LGBTQ/academic conferences
- specific academic and educational programming organized through the LGBTQ Center
If you would like to find out more about how you can support the Brown LGBTQ Center or you have questions about TBGALA please email Kelly Garrett or call 401-863-3495.
