OUR STORY

On a rooftop in San Francisco in 2016, five friends sat together discussing the changing and tumultuous political environment. Reflecting on an increasingly divided country and escalated threats to the emotional and mental health of LGBTQ+ individuals, the group collectively decided to act by combining their resources and focusing their efforts on a specific target. The result? wayOUT, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on empowering LGBTQ+ youth by investing in LGBTQ+ centers in their local communities.
