The LGBT Center is dedicated to supporting and promoting the LGBT community and its members at Penn and our surrounding neighborhood.  If you have an event or announcement that you would like added to our newsletter or events calendar please read the follow and select the option that is best for you.


Every Wednesday, the LGBT Center distributes our weekly electronic newsletter, queer-E, detailing the latest events, programs, and announcements relevant to the LGBT community at Penn and the surrounding Philadelphia area. To be included in the next queer-E newsletter, please make sure the following criteria are met:

  1. Only events open to the public and of interest to the LGBT community should be submitted. Submissions must adhere to the university’s anti-discrimination policy to be included. For example, an event requiring attendees to be a member of a specific group will not be included.

  2. Ongoing events or programs will be included once a month ONLY in the newsletter.

  3. Each announcement will run for no less than two and no more than four consecutive newsletters prior to the event, provided the information is received in time and depending on the amount of submissions already received for that week’s issue. Events will be listed in chronological order.

  4. Each organization may submit up to three announcements per newsletter; however, the LGBT Center reserves the right to omit announcements as needed to keep the newsletter brief and effective.

  5. Artwork and logos are acceptable ONLY as an html link.

    Please note the deadline for submission is midnight on the Monday prior to the weekly distribution.  Also, due to the high volume of submissions received for each newsletter, the LGBT Center reserves the right to make the final decision on an event’s inclusion.

   If you meet the criteria above, please click the newsletter submission link to the right.


The LGBT Center also keeps a running calendar of events on our site.  This calendar is strictly for events sponsored by the LGBT Center and its affiliated groups or by organizations hosting events in the Carriage House. If you do not fit these criteria, you may consider your event for submission in our weekly newsletter.

If you or your organization are hosting an event at the LGBT Center and you would like the event added to our calendar, please use the calendar submission link to the right.
