Live Out Loud’s main goal is to connect LGBT youth to role models and leaders in the LGBT community, people who are passionate about their life’s work and committed to sharing their stories, insight, and advice with the next generation.
Volunteer role models are connected with LGBTQ youth in high school GSA clubs. Speakers discuss their personal journeys, including coming-out stories, career paths, as well as their successes and challenges.
