I have been a part of the Outright family for over 8 years--as an intern, board member, prom chaperone, fire truck puller (yes, you read that right), phone-a-thonner, archivist, brand new facilitator, and general HUGE FAN. There is no other organization that has a bigger place in my heart than Outright. It is a truly youth-driven, empowerment-focused, strengths-based, celebratory, educational, visionary, queer place. This is not always the easiest path to take, or the one that garners the most funding. Youth in our community sometimes want, need, and prioritize things that do not align with popular funding streams. However, Outright is wholeheartedly committed to their values and to being a queer organization in many senses of the word. The staff work their amazing butts off for this place. As do the board, facilitators, volunteers, and youth! Here's to another 20+ years of excellent service!
