Abstract: This group describes itself as "a non-partisan organization of gay men and lesbians who are students, faculty and staff at the University of Columbia (UBC). We consider ourselves to be a community organization rather than a strictly service, socially, or politically - oriented group. Our aims and purposes are therefore diverse. We recognize that the major need of most gay students is simply for a chance to meet other gay students in a non-threatening environment." Gay People of UBC also sees the need to educate the university community at large about gay people and their way of life.
This group meets regularly during winter term and also publishes a monthly newsletter. Activities are also planned for the summers. An annual "Gay at UBC" is organized around St. Valentine's Day.
This organization no longer exists.
