2017 10th anniversary of OUT for Change Campaign
The Out for Change Campaign was a student-led initiative in the Fall 2007 which led to the historic townhall with President DeGioia in October 2007, the creation of three working groups, and the eventual formation of the LGBTQ Resource Center. On September 27, 2017, the LGBTQ Resource Center celebrated the 10th anniversary of this student-led campaign through a panel conversation with student, faculty, and staff that were part of the historic campaign.
President John DeGioia's offers remarks at the historic public townhall hosted on October 24, 2007 to address student concerns and LGBTQ student resources at Georgetown University.
A panel of students, faculty, and staff reflect on their involvement with the Out for Change Campaign 10 years later.
I AM Campaign
The “I AM” campaign is an annual part of OUTober that allows students to proudly declare their identities. Since its formation this campaign has been a form of empowerment and visibility for students across campus. This year we have also asked faculty and staff to participate. What does "I Am" mean to you?
Coming Out in Red Square 2015
Coming Out in Red Square is GUPride’s annual Coming Out Day Celebration. It celebrates the progress Georgetown has made to become a more inclusive campus, while recognizing that there are still challenges. This event features a door through which students “come out” as proud LGBTQ Hoyas and Allies.
