Trans and Gender-Nonconforming UMass Student Support Group Starting This Fall
A support group for trans and gender-nonconforming students will be held on Tuesdays from 6:30- 8 p.m. beginning on September 15. The group is free, open to all UMass students who identify on the trans spectrum, and is facilitated by Ethan Suniewick, a trans-identified therapist. The therapist will conduct a short intake phone interview with students before they join the group. To register or for more information, please contact Genny at the Stonewall Center: or 545-4826. Sponsored by the Stonewall Center and the Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH).


The mission of the Stonewall Center is to provide support, resources, programming, and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA) and allied students, staff, and faculty at UMass Amherst and for the larger Pioneer Valley. We also seek to educate the campus and local community about heterosexism, genderism, other forms of oppression, and the intersections of identities and oppressions in order to strengthen and sustain an inclusive climate for LGBTQIA individuals and their allies. We work closely with other campus departments and offices and local organizations to foster student learning, development, and leadership; promote academic excellence; build LGBTQIA communities; and enhance the lives of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
