Event Details

Our public lands belong to all of us and everyone deserves the chance to enjoy time in the great outdoors. OUT There Adventures and Pride Outside are dedicated to providing relevant, inclusive opportunities outdoors for the LGBTQ community. We are excited to host the first of its kind LGBTQ Outdoor Summit--a chance to come together with representatives of the outdoor industry, conservation community, environmental education, and more to discuss the state of the LGBTQ community and the outdoors and look for opportunities to work together to support equity and social justice OUTside.
