On June 24th, 2017 - OUTWOD will be hosting 4 (yes...four) events to celebrate PRIDE month in New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami.

We are incredibly excited and honored to be hosting our cross-country events with our partners at BRICK Los AngelesICE NYC, and CrossFit Armed to benefit The Pride Network, Brave Trails, and The Get Real Movement.

Over the last 6 years, OUTWOD has grown to become the largest collective of LGBTQ athletes and allies and we're not stopping there. We will soon be announcing our next big step in supporting our communities beyond the four walls of our host gyms. Stay tuned for this exciting announcement coming late Summer 2017.

The Pride Network strives to develop a more involved and informed LGBTQ community through leadership programs and practical solutions that build, educate and empower sustainable community networks.

The Pride Network envisions a society where strong community leaders create and sustain networks toward a more conscious and engaged LGBTQ culture. The Pride Network also looks to a time when a fundamental part of being an LGBTQ person is the opportunity to access a community that empowers and informs the individual about their collective past, present, and future.

Brave Trails is more than just your average summer camp. While we have a lot of elements of a typical camp, our main focus is helping our campers grow in to the brave leaders they are destined to be. Our program focuses on four key elements: Leadership, Community Building, Self Realization, and Service.

We use workshops, adventure, creative programming, service projects, peer connections, and positive role models to create a safe space where youth can thrive. With the skills learned at camp, our campers will be primed to thrive in their schools, workplace, and personal life. In addition, our campers will have the knowledge and confidence to be more impactful leaders and implement innovative social change in their communities.

Get REAL is a youth-focused non-profit organization that energizes LGBTQ+ students and their allies to voice their stories. 

We accomplish this by offering inclusivity workshops and by providing leadership development through our chapter program across North America.

Our programming aims to break down prejudice, promote unity, and foster compassion in our world.

GSA Network is a next-generation LGBTQ racial and gender justice organization that empowers and trains queer, trans and allied youth leaders to advocate, organize, and mobilize an intersectional movement for safer schools and healthier communities. 

Our overall strategy for fighting for educational justice is to work with grassroots, youth-led groups and GSAs, empowering them to educate their schools and communities, advocate for just policies that protect LGBTQ youth from harassment and violence, and organize in coalition with other youth groups across identity lines to address broader issues of oppression.

All of our work with students focuses on leadership development and activism that prioritizes building alliances not only across sexual orientation and gender identity lines, but also across race, ethnicity, and class lines, and our resources and trainings are designed to facilitate coalition building.
