Out in UL enforces a safe space policy. We believe that this ‘safe space’ is extremely important to our society because, unfortunately, the world is not always a welcoming place. Sometimes you might be scared to express an opinion, or to be yourself. Or, maybe you’re afraid that by coming to an Out in UL event, someone could ‘out’ you to others.
Whatever you’re feeling, don’t worry. In our meetings, no one will look down on you. You are and always have been our equal. We strive to make sure you feel as safe and as happy in our meetings as you would when you’re snuggled up in bed. We have zero tolerance for any kind of hateful or hurtful language, and perhaps most importantly, whatever is said in the room, stays in the room. No one will ‘out’ you, no one will be indiscreet about certain subjects, no one will shame you for what you are experiencing. We’re like a family, and with that we want you to be as comfortable as possible.
If you are still not sure about coming to one of our meetings, why not take a moment to contact our Befriender’s Service? Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message us anonymously on out Befriender’s tumblr blog. We can arrange to have two of our committee members meet you at an agreed location to discuss any questions or fears you might have. We’re here to help!
