The mission of the Queer Student Commission (QSC), formerly Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, Transgender Commission (GBLTC), is to first support, educate, and offer safe space to gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender UW students. In addition, we aim to provide non-hetero-sexist, anti-racist, non-ablest and non-sexist programming and services. We aim to create an anti-oppressive community by funding, sponsoring and endorsing events, ideas, and information that share these anti-oppressive principles, promote community and work to increase a nurturing environment for all students.

The Queer Student Commission is one of eight diversity commissions under the Associated Students of the University of Washington. We are an umbrella organization for gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, and ally students on campus.
In 1971 the first GBLT group was established, the Gay Students Association (GSA). The name of this group was changed in 1974 to the Gay People's Association (GPA), and then changed again to the Gay Men and Lesbian Association (GMLA), and finally to the Gay Bisexual and Lesbian Association (GBLA). Then in May of 1991 the ASUW Board of Control passed bill #144 which granted commission status for the Gay, Bisexual and Lesbian Commission. The final name of the commission was changed in September of 1997 to the Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, Transgender Commission.
