Queer Orientation (QO) is an annual series of 2SLGBTQ-centred programming across all three campuses of U of T during September. QO is an opportunity for new and returning students, staff, faculty and librarians to make connections with other 2SLGBTQ+ people, engage in activities and have discussions related to 2SLGBTQ+ communities at U of T.

Throughout the years, Queer Orientation has featured drag nights, dance parties, informational sessions, ice skating, games days/nights, and more! Be sure to check out the full schedule in September 2023 because there is definitely something for everyone. #UofTQO
