Spectrum dates back to 1974. As Ball State’s predominate GSRM (gender, sexual, and romantic minority) organization, Spectrum holds a variety of meetings and events for a variety of individuals. Although Spectrum is a group for the GSRM Community, everyone with an open mind is welcome to attend!

The mission of Spectrum is to educate the Ball State and Muncie communities on gender, sexual, and romantic minority issues, cultures, and history through various programming efforts. Spectrum's goal is to provide an anonymous, healthy, and safe place for Ball State University students and individuals in the surrounding communities who are discovering their personal identities to help find an understanding network of support. Consider attending one of Spectrum's great events, including:

      Speakers Panels
      Semi Annual Drag Show
      Proud Month
      Spring Week
      National Coming Out Day
      Lavendar Graduation
      Unity Week
      Queer Monologues

Spectrum exists to provide an anonymous, safe, and friendly place for gender, sexual, and romantic minorities and their allies to socialize and obtain information. This organization provides social support to create a comfortable, confidential, and accepting atmosphere for its members. Confidential meetings are held weekly during fall and spring semesters. Anyone and everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or romantic identity is welcome to attend. Due to the nature of this organization, everyone is asked to respect the privacy of others. Meetings are both fun and educational.

Spectrum would love to hear from you! Meetings are held every Thursday at 8 p.m. For more information contact Spectrum by e-mail (spectrum @bsu.edu). In addition, you can contact the advisor, Emma Mently, Assistant Director of Student Life.
