- Transcend will exist to better fit the needs of the growing population of students that identify in the transgender, bi-gender, agender, and gender nonconforming spectrum(s). It will serve as a support group for these students to connect with allies and others that identify as they do. It will work alongside existing LGBTQ+ organizations and institutions already in place to further the acceptance, recognition, and fair treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and (especially) transgender students on campus. Transcend will also serve as a reminder to prospective or incoming transgender students that there are others like them currently on campus, and despite TAMU's anti-LGBTQ+ reputation they will have a place on our campus. With that, Transcend will work with the university to help nullify its current anti-LGBT reputation.
- Aggie Allies are staff, faculty, and students at Texas A&M who have participated in our Safe Space training program called Allies Advance. Allies are individuals who are willing to provide a safe haven, a listening ear, and support for GLBT people or anyone dealing with sexual orientation or genderidentity/expression issues.Allies can display a placard in the office, classroom, or on their door showing that they are a friend to the GLBT community. They can also participate in continuing education opportunities (presentations, watch movies, go to events on campus, etc) and receive a ribbon to add to their placard.
