True Colors becomes OUTreach

The Mount Holyoke student organization called True Colors has been disbanded and reformed as OUTreach, a name that better fits their values and direction, and their intention to reach out to the campus community and beyond:

OUTreach is a student-run organization that strives to offer a safe, inclusive, and supportive space for students who identify as sexual and/or gender minorities and allies. OUTreach coordinates and collaborates with other LGBTQ-identified organizations at Mount Holyoke, within the five college consortium, and within the greater community to organize various social events as well as activist projects.

A letter went out to the True Colors mailing list in September, stating in part: "We want to help create and foster a safe and inclusive queer community on campus that cultivates healthy relationships amongst one another. We are committing ourselves to value and respect the diversity within our community, including diversity of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, faith, and so on. We pledge to cultivate a space in which all members are equally respected, valued, and protected."
