Washington University in St. Louis is home to multiple LGBTQ+ student organizations, in addition to LGBTQmed. Here is some information about our sister organizations throughout the other Washington University graduate programs.


“OUTmed is an organization for LGBTQIA-identified faculty, residents, fellows and staff at Washington University School of Medicine. OUTmed is supported by the Department of Medicine, and is open to members of the entire School of Medicine, regardless of departmental affiliation. Our goals include increasing visibility of the LGBTQIA community at Washington University School of Medicine, fostering networking and mentoring relationships for LGBTQIA students, faculty, residents and staff, and facilitating communication among members of the Washington University School of Medicine interested in LGBTQIA-related health care and research topics.”



“OUTgrads is the university-wide LGBTQ+ group dedicated to developing community among WUSTL graduate and professional students, faculty, and staff of all genders and sexual orientations, to promoting awareness of the issues that affect our communities, and to facilitating community involvement by our membership.  We are especially concerned with promoting inter-departmental dialogue, providing support for graduate and professional students both socially and in their professional development, and encouraging advocacy on our campus and in the St. Louis area.”



“OUTLaw is an educational, political, and social alliance of law students interested in working with Washington University and the surrounding community towards fostering and maintaining an environment that is supportive, positive, and safe for LGBTQ+ individuals. In striving for a greater understanding of sexuality and gender issues at the law school and within the affiliated communities, OUTLaw aims at addressing the legal issues associated with sexual and gender diversity and provides resources and support for social activism.”
