Over the last three years, RAMSEY JOHNSON has worked in his spare time to build OUTBio, a networking organization for LGBTQ members of the Boston-area biopharma community. OUTBio now has a membership roll of about 500, and puts on monthly networking events hosted by Boston-area biopharma firms big and small, drawing more than 100 attendees to each event. It may be the only group of its kind, and size, in the country. Johnson organizes the events, and now plans to turn OUTBio into a nonprofit organization.
