Greetings to University of California, Santa Barbara LGBTQ+ alumni! The UCSB Alumni Association is excited to start a network for UCSB graduates who are LGBTQ+! The intent of this network is to facilitate strong connections among LGBTQ+ alumni, including networking with each other as well as connecting back to UCSB. There are many ways to get involved with the LGBTQ+ Alumni Network - you can attend an event, volunteer with the network, or be a leader of this group! If you are interested in any of these involvement opportunities, email Director of LGBTQ+ Resources at

LGBTQ+ alumni are UCSB graduates and former students who are part of queer and trans communities. Supporters of or graduates in solidarity with queer and trans people might also choose to be members of this alumni network. The UCSB Alumni Association does not regulate membership in this group. We welcome any alum who seeks to be in community with LGBTQ+ people.
