Lambda Delta Xi Diaternity


Lambda Delta Xi Diaternity is an all-inclusive, Greek-lettered service organization that offers a new aspect of Greek life for students who are members of the queer community (belonging to any number of groups including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual, demisexual, polysexual, polyamorous and gender non-conforming) or who are allies to these groups. Lambda Delta Xi holds the distinction of not being a sorority or a fraternity, but rather a diaternity, which means transcending boundaries as many in the queer community do. LDX was officially founded on October 24, 2014 and recognized as an organization by Kutztown University on November 11, 2014.

LDX's four principles are solidarity, education, advocacy, and activism.

Lambda Delta Xi can be found online on Facebook and their website.

Discussion Groups

The GLBTQ Resource Center hosts a number of weekly student-facilitated discussion groups each semester. Current discussion group(s) include:

 

Trans* and Non-Binary Support Group
Meets every other Friday @ 6:30 p.m. in the GLBTQ Resource Center.

(Does not meet over summer)

This group provides community, support, and friendship to trans* and Non-Binary identifying students. Each meeting varies with the goal to meet the needs of the students, whether that means a game night, peer-support, or information. 
This group is only for students who identify as Trans* or Non-Binary.


Creating a Discussion Group

  • If you would like to start a discussion group or have an idea for a group, contact Brit Barlup for more information. All discussion groups must have a student staff co-facilitator.
  • If you would like to know more or have a one-on-one conversation about a certain topic, contact the center with your request, and we will have an employee with in-depth knowledge of the matter contact you.
