Transcend is a Texas State student group for any and all transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse students, as well as their Allies. This diversity includes all forms of gender identity and expression which transgress societal assumptions of sex designated at birth. While we use the terms “transgender”, “non-binary” and “gender-diverse” in our language, we also welcome intersex individuals, drag performers, and individuals who are otherwise exploring and discovering new ways to express and identify their own genders.
This student organization gives transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse students and their Allies an opportunity to come together to share experiences and to support each other at Texas State around issues related to gender identity and expression.
The students and advisors of Transcend also work to promote equity and diversity of gender at Texas State through activities, events, and advocacy. Texas State University has a non-discrimination statement that includes gender identity and expression, and the students and advisors in Transcend at Texas State work to continue manifesting the spirit of that non-discrimination statement throughout the campus so that transgender, non-binary and all gender diverse students are affirmed and nurtured at Texas State.

QueerCats is an organization that will be utilized as a resource for students who identify as LGBTQIA+ as well as a person of color. However it is open to many different identities. We will focus on ways to uplift and educate through tolerance of others who don't agree or understand what it is like being apart of these communities.
Our mission for QueerCats is to promote self-awareness, professionalism, leadership, and advocacy for students who identify as multicultural and LGBTQIA+ within the Texas State Community. We will actively encourage discussion regarding the intersectionality of all characteristics in one space to discuss the commonality of the positives and negatives aspects of identifying with one or more identities.
