Out in the Woods is a social and advocacy group for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer and Allied students at YSE. As YSE and the environmental movement continue to address diversity issues on multiple levels, Out in the Woods is working to increase the openness and inclusivity at YSE towards those who identify as LGBTQ.
Primarily, Out in the Woods provides a safe and welcoming space within YSE for students who identify as LGBTQ. Additionally, we provide a means to network with allied groups in the graduate and professional school community and work to extend the reach of underrepresented and minority groups within the environmental community. Out in the Woods sponsors discussion groups, film showings, social events, and brings speakers to campus.
