Celebrating our 14th Year



Changing Minds & Lives of Alumni & Midshipmen


We are the association of proud United States Naval Academy alumni who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender joined by our supporters and friends. As one of the more organized groups of Academy alumni, we strive to provide a path for “reconnection” to the many GLBT USNA alumni who have over time been disassociated from the Academy and the USNA Alumni Association because of their sexuality or gender identity. We also are dedicated to doing our part to support the mission of the Academy to strengthen the margin of excellence in the development and training of our nation's future leaders, particularly to ensure the dignity and respect of all who serve.



We understand the various phases and levels of being “out” .. first to yourself, then perhaps close friends, peers, parents, your professors and coach, your wardroom, to your division or squad, your office or to the world. Despite “Out” in our name, you don’t need to be out to join us. What matters is that you are you. Some of our members are still questioning, and many members are allies. Some registered members have opted to remain hidden from other members on our roster, but still have full access to our site and communications. USNA Out welcomes all USNA Alumni and other eligible individuals to join us. If you are not yet ready to join as a member, you can still take comfort in knowing that there are many other alumni & midshipmen just like you.



If you are one of us, you can JOIN THE NETWORK OF OVER 300 LGBT ALUMNI AND ALLIES. Membership is open to all alumni of USNA. Associate Membership is available to USNA Faculty and Staff, Midshipmen and Parents of current and former midshipmen.

Signals OSCAR

It's a winner. We've hijacked . . . ooops we mean hoisted the OSCAR Flag.

Many thanks to our graphic non-designer Steve Clark Hall '75 who while working as our webmaster began using the Oscar flag as a simple graphic for the 16 by 16 pixel "favicon" .... the little icon that appears in your browser URL window. It's official.

OSCAR is for OUT

3/10/2005 - Members Approve Objectives and Mission Statement

By an overwhelming majority, the USNA Out membership approved the Objectives and Mission Statements which were developed at the “Meeting of Friends” held in January at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Additionally, the organization name “USNA Out” was retained as our best identity with which to continue our mission.

Although there was well more than a quorum of votes cast, about 20 USNA Out members failed to vote.

Please keep your USNA Out contact data up to date!
