LGBTQ+ Caucus Chair: Connor Kratz, Boston College

"Hello everyone, I'm from Minneapolis, Minnesota, (Pronouns: He, Him, His) and I currently study Political Science and Sociology at Boston College. I plan to attend law school after undergrad, and then become involved in public policy and government administration. Aside from my involvement in the LGBT caucus in CDM, I have interned at the Boston office of US Senator Elizabeth Warren, I currently serve as a class representative in the Undergraduate Government of Boston College, and I'm a proud member of the Students for Sexual Health. I became involved in the LGBT caucus to organize members of all identities in the community and strive for greater LGBT equality in the Commonwealth. My goal for the caucus is to collaborate with LGBT groups across the state to plan solidarity events, register voters, and foster dialogue about issues and initiatives within the community, in addition to ensuring our next president is NOT Donald Trump!"

Christopher holds a BA in Legal Studies and a BS in Public Health Sciences. Throughout undergrad, Christopher played the Trombone, Euphonium, and Clarinet in the Marching and Concert Band.

Christopher loves traveling and is making it his goal to go somewhere outside of Massachusetts at least once every month during 2016. His favorite color is green and his favorite show is Scandal.


The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) Caucus engages LGBT students in the Democratic Party, fighting to expand the rights of the LGBT community beyond same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth. This caucus also fosters dialogue among college students, the public, and elected officials on specific issues that affect the LGBT community.
