BUMC Pride


Boston University Medical Campus LGBTQ+ Organization (Formerly MedGLO)

We are excited to announce our group’s new name: BUMC Pride! As we expand our presence and affiliations throughout the BU Medical Campus here in South End, we hope that our new name better reflects who we are as a group and emphasizes our commitment to inclusivity.

Our Mission:

Our organization showcases the diversity of the students, faculty, and staff at the medical campus and joins the network of many other lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations within the Boston University system and the surrounding community. The primary goal of MedGLO is to provide a safe, supportive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied students, faculty, and staff. We are here to educate future and current health professionals on the social issues and health concerns of the LGBT community in order to break down prejudices and misconceptions that can undermine patient care and personal growth. We encourage professional and personal development through discussions, conferences, socials, community activism and advocacy.
