QSAPP (Queer Students of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation) is a student organization that seeks to foster both conversation and community among LGBTQ students, their allies, faculty, and alumni of GSAPP. We actively explore contemporary queer topics and their relationships to the built environment through an engagement with theory and practice.

Most recently, QSAPP explored the problem of LGBTQ homeless youth and its intersection with design. We published a document on the subject, Safe Space: Housing LGBTQ Youth Experiencing Homelessness. We also co-presented an event commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, Stonewall 50: Defining LGBTQ Site Preservation.

We welcome all interested students, faculty, and staff to attend our meetings and events and reach out to our organizers for more information!
