What Former Interns Say

Quote from Jacob Kessler

Interning at Outright after graduation helped me solidify my desire to work in a career in human rights. Working in an office with so many people singularly dedicated to fighting for LGBTIQ people around the globe helped me develop a more nuanced perspective on what it means to work towards justice on an international level. People who work at Outright are so warm and accepting, that it feels like you're working with friends rather than colleagues. At Outright, you'll learn firsthand what it takes to support brave international activists and this experience will change your personal activism forever. I highly recommend anyone interested in LGBTIQ issues to intern at Outright!
