CampusOUT: LGBT Campus Coalition

CampusOUT, a program of the Gay Alliance, is a coalition of campus gay-straight alliances dedicated to sharing best practices through educational and skill-based training for existing and emerging student leaders.

CampusOUT is a student run coalition that pulls on the knowledge and experience of activists in the queer community. CampusOUT acknowledges the strength of student movements to fight for the equality of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people, and will use our power as students to tackle institutions that enable homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, sexism, racism, classism, and the spread of HIV and STI’s to persist.

In order to effectively complete our mission, CampusOUT will use the following tactics:

Coordinate and promote campus GSA activities and events

Share resources to educate students, faculty and staff on sexual orientation and gender identity and expression

Advocate for fully inclusive campus policies

Work against hate based violence and hate speech

Promote diversity and respect

Canisius College: Unity

At Canisius, Unity is a student run organization that implements club-wide and campus-wide programs and initiatives to educate the community on GLBT issues with the goal of creating a more accepting atmosphere free of homophobic behavior.

Unity as a support system:

On the Canisius level and within our own group, the mission of Unity is to provide students an atmosphere where they will feel safe discussing issues concerning gender and sexuality. Unity is a safe place where members can feel free being who they are and saying what they feel.

Unity as a networking body:

At Canisius, Unity will exist as one of over 110 clubs and organizations on campus and will seek to co-sponsor events and network with these other groups to increase name recognition and inter-campus support. On a larger scale, Unity looks to keep in contact with sister Jesuit schools’ Gay-Straight Alliances, as well as local schools and organizations in the Western New York GLBT community, and seek to provide assistance through manpower, fundraising, and creativity.

NYSUT LGBTQ Educator Task Force and Resources

It went from idea, to discussions, to a NYSUT resolution, and finally to a face-to-face meeting: 20 union members of a new task force met this past weekend to share stories and begin determining the best way to educate peers and advocate for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning/Queer colleagues.

Their task, as set out by a 2013 NYSUT resolution from the Representative Assembly, is to examine the atmosphere toward LGBTQ people in education, which has too often included bullying, exclusion or derision, creating anxiety and secrecy.
