OUTlook

OUTlook is an organization to help gay, lesiban, bisexual, straight, and transgender students at NMU reach their fullest potential.  This should take many forms, as each human is different.  NMU OUTlook is founded on four basic tenants: self-pride, self-determination, support, and community services.  The group's membership list is kept confidential.  The gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender members of the group are not required to be publicly "out."  Everyone interested is welcome to be a member -- sexual orientation is not an issue.  All members and their opinions are equal.
