About SpeakOUt Panels

Our SpeakOUt panels educate groups on and off campus through story-sharing panels. Panels provide the opportunity for audiences to engage sexual and gender diversities via personal experiences of volunteer panelists, questions and discussion. SpeakOUt panels can include a combination of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the wider community.  

We create an accepting atmosphere where people can feel safe to ask any question. Volunteer panelists do not claim to represent the entirety of queerness and only represent themselves speaking from their own experiences. We encourage ALL questions to be asked while also respecting the right of a panelist to decline to answer and/or explain why a question might be inappropriate.
