Throughout the month of June, we’re highlighting organizations and initiatives that advocate for greater outdoor access among the LGBTQ+ community. Today’s feature is LGBTQ+ Outdoors, a wide-ranging resource center for queer outdoor participants.
Offering a wide range of services—everything from outdoor instructional videos to a comprehensive LGBTQ+ campground guide—the resource center called LGBTQ+ Outdoors is a great tool for planning your next road trip or adventure. If there’s an event or festival you don’t want to miss, you’ll find it here.
Case in point: According to LGBTQ+ Outdoors, this September, the largest LGBTQ+ campground in Texas, the Rainbow Ranch, will host an event called LGBTQ+ Outdoorfest. The festival packs all the fun of a summer camp for adults into one weekend, offering workshops on everything from nature photography and fly fishing to birding and archery. Other events include family dinners, bonfires, yoga, and fireside chats with guides and instructors.
Throughout the rest of the year, LGBTQ+ Outdoors is a treasure trove of content for members of the queer community looking to get outside.
