House of Marsha

Affinity spaces “allow students who share an identity—usually a marginalized identity—to gather, talk in a safe space about issues related to that identity, and transfer that discussion into action that makes for a more equitable 
experience at school.”

Sponsored by the Center for Race, Equity, and Identity, the student-led CREI Affinity Spaces seek to celebrate identity and create intentional space for connection, community, and joy. 

House of Marsha is exclusive for those who self-identify as both students of color and LGBTQ+. House of Marsha is named for Marsha P. Johnson was an activist, self-identified drag queen, performer, and survivor. She was a prominent figure in the Stonewall uprising of 1969. Marsha went by “Black Marsha” before settling on Marsha P. Johnson. The “P” stood for “Pay It No Mind,” which is what Marsha would say in response to questions about 
her gender.
