The mandate of the LGBTQ Advisor focuses on fostering understanding of issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, and reducing structural barriers to the full inclusion and participation of members of queer and trans communities at McGill. Thus, the LGBTQ Advisor also strives to address intersecting issues of class, ability, race, and more.
