CangKimVo is the program assistant at LGBTSS, lead of QTPOC (Queer and Trans POC) Space, co-founder of CRIME (Caring Radically in Marginalized Environments) and president of Transcendence.

According to CangKimVo, these are groups for students to connect with other students within the LGBTQ+ space:

QTPOC Space and Black Queer Space (@QTPOClmu) - a space closed to students who identify as LGBT+ or questioning and are POC and/or Black.

CRIME (@crimelmu) - a service group led primarily by QTPOC that focuses on decentering whiteness and providing radical care, abolition work, and mutual aid.

Transcendence (@transcendencelmu) - an organization to celebrate trans, including nonbinary and genderqueer, students.

Queer Film Club - an organization to watch and discuss queer films.

Somewhere Under the Rainbow (LEO link here) - an organization for queer students and allies to hang with each other online (especially discord). Join the Discord server here.
