Lambda Grads is the overarching LGBT organization for graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania. We organize social and academic events to promote an active and welcoming presence and community for LGBT individuals and their allies. We work with other organizations on and off campus, and we welcome the input and suggestions of all members of the Penn community.

Please feel free to contact us with your questions, answers and comments.
