Texas A&M Professor Brian N. Larson receives the Aggie Allies Rainbow Award this week. The Rainbow Award, sponsored by Aggie Allies, recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a commitment to diversity by serving as a role model and contributing to the education of the Texas A&M University community regarding LGBTQ+ people and issues. Award recipients receive a commemorative item and a monetary award.

According to law school student and OUTLaw student organization president Lora Naismith, Larson encourages networking events that are "crucial for younger LGBTQ+ law students." The networking events expose students to various practice areas and diversity and inclusivity efforts in the community.

Serving on the board of directors of the Dallas LGBT Bar Association, Larson furthers its mission to promote awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and to advocate for equality through his advocacy of OUTLaw. His support allows OUTLaw students to undertake initiatives aimed at reducing inequities.

The student group hosts a meeting in August to greet and welcome new LGBTQ+ students and allies and recently hosted a panel on the evolution of LGBTQ+ laws and discussed foster care and adoption for LGBTQ+ families.
