About Us

OUTspoken provides representation for the GLBT community within RIT’s Student Government. OUTspoken seeks to create an environment within the RIT community that is inclusive to all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, and to eradicate heterosexism, homophobia and transphobia within the Rochester area. To accomplish this task, our Major Student Organization (MSO) seeks to partner with clubs and other organizations, such as RITGA and the GLBT Center, to provide programs and services, such as our GLBT speaker series, which will further educate the RIT community to GLBT concerns.
