OUT for Sustainability launched in the fall of 2008 after months of brainstorming over games of tennis and community engagement meetings with every available Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) and sustainability stakeholder we could find. What came from that was that making the LGBTQ community and the sustainability movement be friends was much more than getting a date, it was about partnerships, action and fun. Now a thriving nonprofit based in Seattle, all-volunteer run and supported by a network of LGBTQ and ally organizations, OUT4S is a voice for the next evolution of the LGBTQ community.
Mission: OUT for Sustainability engages and mobilizes the LGBTQ community to advance social and environmental sustainability.
Vision: OUT for Sustainability believes the LGBTQ community can be a leader in creating a thriving human and natural ecosystem for us all.
Diversity: OUT for Sustainability continually strives to foster an inclusive environment for all of our participants. We believe that a sustainable future is one where everyone has full equality and ability to participate in the ongoing process of making our world more responsible and just.
