Spectrum: Neopronouns

A biweekly discussion group for trans + non-binary people


The Commons : 004

Date & Time

February 28, 2024, 4:00 pm5:00 pm


 Join the Spectrum discussion group in the Women’s Center lounge for our second meeting of the Spring semester! You do not need to have attended a previous session to join.

Discussion will center around neopronouns: what they are, why you might use them, how they came to be, and public perception of neopronouns.

This event is facilitated by Ash Acuña.


The Spectrum Discussion Group makes space for UMBC community members who identify as trans, genderqueer, gender fluid, outside of the gender binary, and/or those who are questioning their gender identity and those who are allies, regardless of their sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. This discussion-based program follows the Women’s Center Brave Space model to provide a welcoming environment and thoughtful community to engage in conversations focused on the experiences of the transgender community.

Spring 2024: We meet every other week on Wednesdays at 4pm in the Women's Center Lounge!

If you have any questions, concerns, or want to know more about the group, email us at womenscenter@umbc.edu.

This group centers trans, non-binary, and gender-questioning experiences; we request that students do not use this space for class research or interviews.
