Outlist

An important part of building community is establishing networks of support to fit individual needs. It is in that spirit that the PSD OutList, an initiative to support LGBTQ+ members and allies within the PSD was created. By providing more visibility for LGBTQ+ members and allies in the division the OutList helps create additional pathways for inclusion. Learn more and sign up to be listed on the OutList.
