About Us

Out Loud aims to bring together LGBTQIA2+ researchers and allies at McGill. By providing a shared space for this community, The goals of Out Loud are to

  1. support LGBTQIA2+ undergraduate and graduate students and cater to their unique needs
  2. provide an opportunity to learn from our unique and shared experiences
  3. encourage networking with other queer scientists and scientists of marginalized groups beyond McGill
  4. highlight our individual research as queer scientists
  5. project our voices for a more equitable, diverse and inclusive community in science.

Mac Women+ in Science, Prism and Queer Grad Club are proud to host this event, kindly sponsored by the Centre de recherche en biologie structurale (CRBS) and the Faculty of Engineering’s E-IDEA with support from the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) at McGill University.

We hope to highlight the exciting research happening on campus by the queer community. We will host two days of presentations and networking with keynote talks, student talks, and posters; one at the Downtown Campus, and one at Macdonald Campus. There will be prizes for the winners of the best talks and posters!

This event will take place on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange among Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence marks this land on which people of the world now gather.
