In celebration of National Coming Out Day and in honor of every lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) student, faculty, staff, and alumni, the 19th annual “Outlist” is underway. The “Outlist” is a list of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who wish to publicly acknowledge and celebrate that they are LGBTQ and/or allies of the LGBTQ community. The list will appear in the form of an advertisement placed in the Oregon Daily Emerald during the week of October 11. During National Coming Out Week there are several other events and programs. Please see the calendar for a full list of events.
If you are a UO student, alum, faculty, or staff member, and you would like your name to be included in “Outlist 2013,” please fill out the form below. If you prefer a paper sign-up form just email or call 346-6105. We can send a form via campus or regular mail. Please be sure that you read and understand the directions and check the release below.
The ad and ad copy will appear as follows (also see example on the left):
