About The Spectrum Spark

Mission Statement

To create a space to discuss identity, sexuality, and our unified struggle in the queer community amongst ourselves and with our non-queer allies on campus. We aim to spark a conversation between isolated parts of the queer community and our allies to foster education and dialogue surrounding queer topics and allow queer individuals to reach out and connect through the arts. By accentuating our differences, we create unity and show that we are strengthened by the full spectrum of individuals in our community, and that we stand resilient to any challenge that comes our way.

What is The Spectrum Spark?

The Spectrum Spark is a Colorado School of Mines creative journal which is specifically intended to create a space to project the voices of LGBTQ members of Mines and celebrate LGBTQ culture.
