OUTstanding Seminar 

The OUTstanding Seminar is the University of Tennessee's annual LGBTQ conference. Our 2014 theme is the LGBTQ Mind, Body, and Soul, in which we explore mental health, physical wellbeing, and spirituality among gender and sexual minorities. Our keynote this year will be Sonya Renee Taylor, founder of the body positive movement "The Body is Not an Apology", who will be speaking on body image among queer people and lead us in the celebration of our bodies. We will also feature special guest Cameron Mack, speaker from the Active Minds foundation, who will be speaking on how the LGBTQ community aided him in his journey with mental illness.
