PRIDE in Healthcare is an interdisciplinary health sciences student organization dedicated to improving the healthcare conditions for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and other sexual orientation and/or gender identity minority (LGBTQ+) people. Nurses as well as nursing students, faculty and staff can play an important role in advancing health for the LGBTQ+ community as healthcare providers and patient advocates.
In order to promote visibility of LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and allies, PRIDE in Healthcare maintains an ALLY LIST and OUT LIST. The list is posted on the PRIDE in Healthcare board and blog and serves as a resource for LGBTQ+ students and LGBTQ-friendly students to identify people who care about inclusiveness in our school. Students, faculty, and staff who wish to publicly advertise their LGBTQ+ or allied status have the option to join the list. Presence or absence from the OUT LIST and ALLY LIST is a strictly personal decision–no questions asked.
