Regis is a Catholic institution founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston. One of the core values is Care for all God’s creation; this includes members of the LGBTQ+ population. We welcome, value, and support students, staff, and faculty of all identities, genders, sexualities, and orientations.

Regis is committed to highlighting and celebrating the resources it offers on-campus and in the surrounding area for our LGBTQ+ community.

Gay Straight Alliance (GSA)

The Regis GSA is an accepting place for all people regardless of sexual orientation. The GSA brings together gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer students and straight allies to fight homophobia on campus and in the community. By raising awareness of different sexual and gender identities, linking homophobia with other oppressions, and advocating for equal treatment for students of all sexual orientations, the GSA works to create a school environment free of homophobic discrimination.
