Welcome to the first NY6 Spectrum Conference for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer/Questioning, Trans*, Intersex and Ally students! The name “Spectrum” has been intentionally chosen to include all identities. The purpose of the conference is to help students make connections with peers on other campuses, talk about what it’s like to be LGBTQIA student, faculty or staff member at a NY6 school, and discuss how to foster positive change on our campuses.
We are pleased to announce that Laverne Cox, star of the hit Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, will be the keynote speaker for the Spectrum Conference. For more details, please visit the keynote speaker page.
The New York 6 Consortium consists of Hamilton College, Hobart & William Smith Colleges, St. Lawrence University, Colgate University, Union College, and Skidmore College. The consortium seeks to facilitate collaboration among members in fulfilling educational missions, serving the public good, and enhancing options for students, faculty and staff.
