What is MN LGBTQ+ Educator Network?

Our goal is to support and advocate for MN LGBTQ+ Educators and their allies. We provide resources, networking, community building opportunities, training, compassion, and empathy.

We understand that isolation, invisibility, and discrimination can impact our mental health and feelings of belonging. We believe that supporting LGBTQ+ Educators helps not only Educators but also our students and our school communities.

We partner with OutFront MN, Education Minnesota, and Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP).

Members of this group are expected to promote a respectful and positive culture.

A Man. A Pink Triangle. A Journey to Dignity.
In this intimate play, centered around the Nazi persecution of homosexuals, a man must choose outing himself but then face the ultimate consequence. BENT serves as a reminder that any community can have their rights stripped away by hate-mongering forces, but shows how the human heart can never be stripped away.

The BAND Group will partner with OutFront for this production. OutFront's mission is to create a state where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment or discrimination.

Robins Kaplan LLP and OutFront Minnesota

Robins Kaplan LLP is partnering with OutFront Minnesota to launch a new LGBTQ legal clinic. Our next clinic will be a free name change clinic to assist transgender individuals seeking to change their names. The mission of OutFront Minnesota is to create a state where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment or discrimination. In this brief legal advice clinic, volunteer attorneys will walk clients through the name change process and help them draft legal forms to start the name change process.

Express your interest in a name change appointment using the following form. We will follow up with you to schedule your appointment and send you the list of required materials to bring.
