The Queer International Student Assembly (QISA) is a student initiative aimed at creating a safe space for LGBTIQA+ students and allies at the Graduate Institute, while also promoting much needed visibility for our community. We also hope to create a system of support that uplifts one another, as we acclimate to living in Geneva and begin searching for a career in the international realm. Ultimately, our goal is to create a community where everyone at IHEID, regardless of identity, feels comfortable, accepted, and heard.

QISA has successfully hosted a row of events both for IHEID students and for the broader LGBTIQA+ and allied community in Geneva, also participating visibly in Gender & Diversity Month. We endeavour to host events that bring the LGBTIQA+ and allied community together, as well as connect IHEID students to queer-friendly international Geneva. Our events will always strive for inclusivity, community, and fun.

We are looking forward to having you on board ! 🌈
