What is CenterSpace?

CenterSpace provides a monthly drop-in space for different communities within queer life at the University of Michigan. CenterSpace creates space for people of similar identities to gain support from one another while building a community of collective resources. There will be a CenterSpace host each evening who identifies within the community being centered. The host will greet participants, guide the conversation, answer any questions, and gather/share resources.

Our CenterSpaces include:

  • bi, pan, fluid and similarly identified or questioning
  • ace/aromantic and similarly identified or questioning
  • trans, agender, genderqueer, non-binary and similarly identified or questioning
  • queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) and similarly identified
