Barnard Queers & Allies Network


The Barnard Queers & Allies Network (BQAN) is a group of faculty, administrators, staff, and students who wish to publicly showcase their support for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning communities by displaying a BQAN sign in their space on campus. 

The BQAN card states that the individual, “…will listen, provide resources, and create a supportive campus for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning communities.” 

If you would like to nominate a person or department who you feel should be a BQAN member but is not on our list, please email
