OUT IN THE SILENCE in California

With support from the Columbia Foundation, the OUT IN THE SILENCE Campaign is launching a major initiative to help raise visibility and connect, inspire and mobilize LGBT people and Allies in small towns and rural communities across California.

In partnership with state and local groups, the Campaign will conduct town hall-style events in public libraries, churches, schools, colleges and universities, community centers, and local theaters aimed at garnering the media and other forms of public attention necessary to help build bridges across the religious and political divides that have harmed families, friends and communities for far too long.

If you have ideas to contribute or would like to be involved,

Living Out Loud

At the heart of the OUT IN THE SILENCE Campaign is a dedication to the idea that small acts of LGBT visibility in places where they are rare and unexpected help to raise awareness and open-up dialogue in profound new ways and create ripple effects and opportunities to organize for change that go far and wide.

"If you asked me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you:
I Came To Live Out Loud"
