A community that values and supports people of all gender identities, expressions, and sexualities.
OUTSaskatoon builds community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two spirit, intersex, and queer people. We provide peer support and counselling, queer-specific education and resources, outreach, social gatherings and events, community referrals, and sexual health services. We support body, mind and spirit within a growing and changing community.
We are sustained by our dedicated volunteers, staff, and board members, as well as by partnerships with all levels of government, charitable organizations, community foundations, corporations, and individual stakeholders.
