Speak Out! Program

Our Speakout Program gives your students a chance to engage with members of the LGBTQA community. During our Speakouts, our trained panelists will tell their personal coming out stories. After they’ve told their stories, your students will have the chance to interact with the panelists by asking questions and opening up a dialogue. Our goal is to make these panels as interactive and educational as possible by having our panelist share their personal experiences. The best part is, we’ll come right to your classroom! No movement necessary! Faculty can use the online form to request a Speak Out! (You may be required to log in.)
