Outlaw at McGill

OutLaw is a club for queer (including but not limited to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, tran(s)sexual, two-spirited, asexual, intersex, pansexual, questioning, and anyone who identifies with the queer moniker) students and their straight allies. 

OutLaw organizes and participates in a number of events throughout the year. We invite speakers, submit articles, fundraise for local queer services, and engage in research, advocacy and activism on queer legal issues. We also work with the McGill Administration on issues important to queer students and send representatives to a variety of University committees. On a less serious note, we also sponsor films, hold parties, and organize various other social events and outings across Montreal.
