Out Youth serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ (lesbian/gay/bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning) youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults.
Founded in 1990, Out Youth has grown and changed over the years, but we’ve always retained our most important facet – providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ youth to come together, receive support, and make friends who understand who they are.
We host a variety of programs and services for youth, and provide trainings and resources for parents, teachers and community members.
Founded in 1980, the Human Rights Campaign advocates on behalf of LGBT Americans, mobilizes grassroots actions in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded individuals to office and educates the public about LGBT issues.
We, the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning persons (LGBTQ), celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities.

In addition to our monthly meetings we participate in several educational, fundraising, and political activism events throughout the year to help drive awareness and community focus
