Outlist

The Outlist is a webpage directory that indexes UIC faculty and staff who voluntarily choose to be listed as members of the LGBTQAI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Trans, Queer, Asexual, Intersex, and more) community. The purpose of the Outlist is so that current students can reach out to listed members to build community, establish mentorship relationships, etc.

We appreciate our cisgender and straight allies, but this list is exclusively for LGBTQAI+ people.

Please submit your information HERE.

Why is it important to be out/visible? Heading link

“I was hidden for almost 40 years. Being visible means that my peers will begin asking themselves questions and then eventually be able to have conversations about TGNC [Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming] identities. It means that this campus will hopefully become safer for folks like me. It means that TGNC and other students can see that they have a place here.” -Em Rabelais

“When I was growing up, we had no role models (not even bad ones like on Jerry Springer.) Over the years, I’ve found that invisibility isn’t really a choice and that instead of running from the world that it is best to confront it dead on.” – Rebecca Ruhlman

“I am a queer person that identifies as genderqueer/GNC. I was AFAB and present in a masculine of center matter. Throughout my entire medical education, including medical school/rotations/residency, I encountered only one or two providers in the medical community who looked like me or identified as GNC in any way. The lack of representation of gender diversity in medicine, especially amongst physicians, left me feeling like an outsider in many places. I didn’t have anyone who was in the same boat, or had been there, to seek advice from about challenging I encountered. Being out and visible is important to me so that I can help pull the next person up, and to show that they aren’t alone. Having representation is vital to making our community more visible and also developing more inclusive quality medical care.” – Mimi Arquilla

“Being out/visible is important to me as I believe it provides students, faculty, and others opportunities for collaboration and support. I also believe that visibility demonstrates the diversity of the UIC community, particularly among faculty as well as the College of Medicine.” – Lisa Razzano

“Being out or being visible as gender or sexually variant are options that each person can consider if it makes sense for them. For me, being open with colleagues and students about my identities is important because I’ve experienced some of the damage caused by isolation. I hope that by being open, I can invite others to love themselves and to reach out when they need help doing so.” – Erica Chu
