Established in 1995, the Freedom Alliance is an active student organization on campus, serving as both an advocacy and social group for the LGBTQ communities at UMBC. They frequently sponsor movie nights, nationally known speakers, and well attended social events like Queer Prom. In 2007 the Freedom Alliance moved to a permanent office space in the University Center. This contact sheet shows images taken for The Retriever at a tabling event for National Coming Out Day in 1995. The grease pencil marks on the sheet show which images the photographer or newspaper editor selected for publication in the story about the event.
