Portland Outright is a queer & trans youth movement fighting oppression with tenderness. Join them for an evening of interactive community art.
Outright supports underserved members of the LGBTQ+ youth community through weekly member meetings, ongoing mentorship, social events, and trainings, as well as intentional support to youth navigating systems — such as the juvenile justice system, foster care, homelessness and mental health services. They are a community of people invested in each other, building deep connections, sharing both struggle and joy, while fighting for each other’s dignity and survival.
They are committed to moving beyond the traditional LGBTQ+ youth “support group” model by carving out space for young people in leadership, lifting up the experiences of those most deeply experiencing the effects of marginalization, helping members harness and reclaim their inherent power, and becoming active participants in not only their own liberation, but the collective liberation of everyone.
