Our Programs

Live Out Loud’s main goal is to connect LGBTQ youth to positive role models and affirmative experiences in the LGBTQ community, people who are passionate about their life’s work and committed to sharing their stories, insight, and advice with the next generation.


School Program
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.

The Homecoming Project

Sends successful LGBTQ role models to their hometown high schools to share their stories with the next generation.

Educational
Scholarships
Awarded annually to area high school students who demonstrate a strong capacity to “Live Out Loud.” They are making strides in the LGBT Community, both on and off campus and are active in their school’s GSAs.
Behind the Scenes
Connects youth with professional LGBTQ-affinity groups at major corporations. This unique program allows LGBTQ youth to meet out professionals who can help them see the support offered to LGBTQ employees.
