OutRhodesOutRhodes is a society at the Rhodes University which celebrates the sexual orientation of all students, with specific focus on the issues of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-gendered students.

They provide an environment which is comfortable, supportive and fun for all students, whether if they are coming OUT or just want to have a great time. OutRhodes is also determined to educate those students who are prejudiced against homosexuals, bisexuals and trans-gendered people.

During their annual Pride week on campus Gender DynamiX was asked to give a presentation as part of their program. It was well attended and people showed great interest in the discussion. I had also the chance to meet with three of the local trans-women of Grahamstown.
