Advocate

OUT4S advocates for the next evolution of both the sustainability movement and the LGBTQ community to value social and environmental justice while celebrating identity.

Earth Gay celebrates Earth Day, the gay way. Every year we plan and facilitate service projects in Seattle and around the country to show off how the LGBTQ community cares for our planet.

Greener Pride Source engages LGBTQ Pride event stakeholders to coordinate their adoption and celebration of environmentally and socially sustainable practices.

Coming Out Local is our way of showcasing how a thriving sustainable local economy fosters their community to celebrate diversity.

Sustainability and Society Series (SaSS) features bright minds discussing practical action on the biggest topics of our time, whether in a social, a small salon, a large symposium, or a monumental summit.

Partnerships with organizations, businesses and individuals in our local and global community are a fundamental part of OUT4S, leveraging their good work already happening to a new level.

Whether it’s the new gay agenda or theory on the fundamentals of sustainability, OUT4S shares ideas that provoke you to laugh and get serious about action that makes a real difference.
