LGBTQ Academy Continues Amazing Impact

Each year, the LGBTQ Academy at the Out Alliance delivers hundreds of workshops and trainings across the Rochester area, New York, and the country on creating LGBTQ+ inclusive and welcoming spaces. If you’ve been keeping up with our monthly lists, you know that the Academy works with everyone – from K-12 schools to health clinics to colleges to corporations. October was one of our busiest months and saw our team working with local organizations as well as a national laboratory outside of Chicago!


Here’s where the team went in October:

  • First Baptist Church of Rochester
  • Pittsford Mendon High School
  • Alexander Central School
  • Monroe #1 BOCES
  • Hobart and William Smith Colleges
  • Upstate NY Healthcare Human Resources Conference
  • Nazareth College
  • University of Rochester School of Nursing
  • Rochester Regional Health at Unity Hospital
  • Fairport Savings Bank
  • John Fisher College
  • GRC MSW Program
  • College of Brockport
  • Springfield Technical Community College (Massachusetts)
  • SUNY Oswego
  • Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (Illinois)


Feedback from our October participants: 

“This is one of the best learning experiences I have ever experienced and I have attended LOTS of workshops and trainings over the years. The only thing that could improve this workshop was if it was a week long! Seriously, I leave wanting more. Thank you!”

“Simply amazing – spellbinding – really.”

“The only thing that could have made this better was if you cloned yourself so you can give more talks on these topics.”
“Best in-service ever. (I’ve been teaching for 22 years.)”
