Out at Emory

Through a series of focus groups and a survey, the Office of LGBT Life learned that many of our students did not know any LGBTQ-identified faculty and staff – or so they thought. After a campus-wide survey about LGBTQ issues, we also learned through several problematic responses that many were unaware of Emory’s commitment to the LGBTQ community. In response to these problems, the Out@Emory campaign was born.

The campaign allows LGBTQ faculty, staff, students, and alumni greater visibility on campus, which is a major focus of the Office of LGBT Life due to the invisibility of so many of our identities. Below you will find the many people at Emory who identify along a spectrum of sexual and gender identities. We hope the list will continue to grow as more faculty, staff, students, and alumni choose to participate in the program.

If you are interested in being Out@Emory, click here to submit your information. If you identify as an ally, you may participate in the Emory Safe Space program and be listed on the Safe Space Ally list.

The faculty, staff, students, and alumni listed below described their identities in their own words. If you want to learn more about these terms and the different ways people choose to identify, check out some of the resources on this page and consider signing up for a Safe Space training.

Email lgbt@emory.eduif you have any questions or concerns.
