LGBT + Allies Organization for Cultural Understanding in the Health Sciences (LOCUS) in an inter-professional student organization aimed at advancing awareness and advocating for the LGBTQ community at LSUHSC and in New Orleans.

We are very grateful to our volunteers for participating in the New Orleans Advocates for GLBT Elders (NOAGE) Gala on Friday, November 17 at Audubon Zoo’s Swamp Exhibit & Cajun Ballroom. We will be having more volunteer events in the near future, so stay tuned.

Be sure to check out our website ( which provides links to resources for LGBTQ students, as well as for the general community. This is also where we post information about any upcoming events. If you would like to receive emails from LOCUS, there is an option on our website to subscribe to our listserv. To protect the privacy of our members, we use the “blind carbon copy” for email correspondence. This means that you can’t see the other recipients of the email and they can’t see you.

We look forward to seeing you all at our meetings and events this year.
