Ally Castillo Inspires Students to Live Authentically

In November of 2014, the Live Out Loud team attended a panel discussion called Transgender Perspective: In and Out of the Workplace in which transgender women from various walks of life shared their stories and experiences. After an insightful and inspiring evening, one of the panelists, make-up artist Ally Castillo, left our team particularly moved. Her openness, perseverance and vulnerability made her the exact type of role model Live Out Loud wants to connect to the students in our school programs.

Live Out Loud Holiday Appeal

When you support Live Out Loud, you empower and guide LGBTQ youth to CHANGE their lives for the better. For more than 13 years, Live Out Loud has provided a platform to discuss issues that matter to teens, and offer hope and inspiration to the next generation.

Can you imagine the courage it takes to come out? To not only reveal your greatest vulnerability, but also to embrace your greatest strength? To be free? To find the belief in yourself and no longer hide who you really are from the world?

This is the work of Live Out Loud. To INSPIRE, NURTURE and EMPOWER LGBTQ youth to be true to themselves, and provide a personal connection to role models who lead fulfilled and successful lives.
