File 6704This sub-committee is looking for new members who identify as LGBTQUIA - or as we as a committee have decided to call ourselves - QUILTBAG.

*QUILTBAG is an acronym. It stands for Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Transgender/Transsexual, Bisexual, Allied/Asexual, Gay/Genderqueer. It is meant to be a more inclusive term than GLBT/LGBT and to be more pronounceable (and memorable) than some of the other variations or extensions on the GLBT/LGBT abbreviation (Source: Queer Dictionary).

QUILTBAG held its first meeting March 27th, 2013. The members that attended decided to define the group with the following terms: Community, Sameness, Awareness, Outreach, Socialization, Activism and Politically Aware within the MoveUP family. This Subcommittee’s goal is to make MoveUP aware of issues that affect and impact the QUILTBAG MoveUP community.

We have started a Facebook page called LGBTQ MoveUP. We are encouraging any MoveUP member that wishes to join this subcommittee to do so by contacting us on Facebook or at COPE378QUILTBAG@gmail.com. As well, anyone can like us on Facebook; you do not have to identify as LGBTQ necessarily to like us or be an ally.
