The Out Foundation is an alumni group of Brigham Young University and other schools operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their hope is to empower fellow alumni and current students to achieve their potential through mentoring, social events, scholarships, and advocacy.
The group is providing financial grants, connecting students with internship opportunities, and enabling support for projects that benefit the LGBTQ+ community either in Utah or abroad.
As part of this objective, Out asked alumni of BYU-Provo, BYU-Idaho, and BYU-Hawaii about their university experience, what they are doing today, and what advice they would give current LGBTQ students at the Church-owned schools.
Here are four of the stories. More are available at their website, theout.foundation.
