BlackOut is an affinity group that facilitates the coming together of black LGBTQIA+ Vanderbilt students in order to share space, experiences, and provide support. BlackOut is co-sponsored by the Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center and the Office of LGBTQI Life. Join us as we build community.
Affinity groups are an opportunity for Vanderbilt students to come together around a shared identity and/or interest they hold. Affinity groups provide an affirming and brave space for individuals to discuss their needs, challenges, and successes. These groups are free and open to Vanderbilt undergraduate and graduate students. Groups meet on campus and are peer and staff facilitated.
