Relationships, Identity and Sex Programming

Affiliated with the Pride Centre, SAMRU’s Relationships, Identity and Sex programming aims to inform students on healthy relationships and sexual and reproductive health, and create a safer space on campus in which students can explore gender and sexual identity.

Upcoming Programming


Spend your Thursday afternoons with us at Crafternoon, a drop-in craft sesh led by volunteers and staff. Take a well-deserved break from essays, labs, and tutorials and get in on some hands-on fun and relaxation. Every week we’ll provide a DIY craft, as well as all the material and instruction you need, so all you need to do is show up. If you’re feeling nervous, we encourage you to bring a friend!

Join us in the Pride Centre every Tuesday night for Pop Culture Queered! Each week, we’ll meet to discuss queer media across multiple media such as literature, poetry, music, movies, TED talks, YouTube videos and more. Discussions will be centred around themes such as expression, identity, sexuality and gender. Through this club, we hope to offer a safer space for students to have meaningful conversations about LQBTQ+ representations and misrepresentations in literature, media and beyond.
