Community & Culture

OUTMemphis strives not only to provide services but to support LGBTQ+ issues and individuals to become a part of every aspect of civic life for every demographic. We host social support groups, peer-led projects, and social activities specific to trans men and women of color, seniors, parents of queer youth, Latinx individuals, men of color, and every intersection of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. Our international queer film festival, OUTFlix, celebrates its 22nd year in 2019. We are a proud, local partner of many regional organizations including churches, schools, libraries, health-care providers, major arts institutions, advocacy organizations, media, entertainment, and more.
