Rainbow Fords is a student organization dedicated to creating a safe space for questioning, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans* and other queer Haverford students. The organization was originally known as the Queer Discussion Group (QDG) that has existed on Haverford College’s campus for a number of years. THe QDG was created as a safe, confidential space for queer students to meet up and discuss topics related to gender, sexuality, community, and life. In fall 2019, QDG surveyed the community and found that people wanted the group to shift towards being more involved on campus. As part of this, QDG decided to change their name to Rainbow Fords after input and a vote from the community. The membership and meetings are kept confidential to maintain a supportive environment and open conversation.
