It Gets Better at URI: Coming Out for Change Documentary

In order to raise awareness of LGBTIQQ issues on campus, in 2011 The LBTQ Women’s Group produced It Gets Better at URI: Coming Out for Change. The film was created to send positive messages and inspire hope in LGBTIQQ students, faculty and staff on campus. The film also identified supportive faculty and staff here at URI. Check out the It Gets Better at URI page!
