Welcome to the OutCenter

We take our work very seriously as a nonprofit that embraces both the work of charity and the work of change – responding to the needs of LGBTQ+ people and their families, helping to make sense of the world we live in now, and mapping the way toward a more equitable, diverse and inclusive future.

You will find great information about services, precedent setting programs, FUN(d)raising events, and links to resources found locally, across the state, and across the nation. You will also find opportunities to get engaged in community advocacy, learn more about the issues that impact you and your loved ones – and what you can do about it.

Upwards and onwards as ever,

Mary Jo Schnell
Executive Director

The #RespectforMarriageAct is popular, bipartisan federal legislation that would protect the marriages of same-sex and interracial couples under federal law.

We’re proud to join 400+ other organizations in calling for swift passage of this bill – because all families deserve certainty and stability in their daily lives. Join us – and the 71% of U.S. voters who support the bill – by urging your Senators to vote yes ASAP. Link in our bio!
