Out in Front trains LGBTQ people of diverse identities and backgrounds on the theories and skills required to be inspirational, accountable, relevant, and inclusive leaders in the movement for social justice and equality.
Whoever you are and wherever your journey takes you, Out in Front can help you become an even more effective advocate for equality.
Out in Front strives to serve the broadest definition of the LGBTQ community. We welcome anyone with a passion for working toward equality, social justice, and the time and energy to commit to the intensive training program we’ve built. Wherever you come from and wherever you’re going. Contact us if you have questions.
Founded in 2008, Out in Front is led by a dedicated Board of Directors and volunteers, LGBTQ leaders from across the Northwest and beyond, who bring a wide range of experience in politics, non-profit work, the business community, and a variety of other fields. Check out our About Us section to learn more about our organizers.
Our curriculum focuses on nine topic areas ranging from intracommunity diversity, leadership styles, and movement building, to board service, public speaking and media relations skills, all with a focus on the local and regional LGBTQ community. Dig through our Program section for more information.
Out in Front is largely funded through grants and private donations. We charge a sliding scale tuition based on participants’ annual income, and we offer tuition assistance to ensure the greatest possible access to our program.
