Who We Are
Structurally, OUTBermuda is a company ‘limited by guarantee’, used primarily for charitable of social purposes and does not pay dividends. As mentioned elsewhere, the company was formed in November 2014, rebranded in March 2015 and was registered as a charitable organisation on 22 May 2016. We have a Board of Directors and appointed Officers who manage the work of the charity on a volunteer basis. Please find a copy of our Charitable Organization Registration Certificate here: OUTBermuda – 110518 Certificate. We are always looking for continued diversity and community feedback so if you are interested in becoming a part of OUTBermuda, either as a volunteer or in more formal capacity, please reach out to us.
The issues facing the LGBTQ community in Bermuda are as diverse as the community itself – work place inclusiveness, bullying in schools, discrimination, unequal treatment under the law, public ridicule and physical violence are but a few of the areas in which LGBTQ people face adversity.
OUTBermuda promotes and supports the wellbeing, health, dignity, security, safety and protection of the LGBTQ community in Bermuda by proving educational resources on issues of diversity, inclusiveness, awareness and acceptance as regards LGBTQ people, and seeks generally to advance human rights, conflict resolution and the promotion of equality and diversity relating to the LGBTQ community in Bermuda.
