Leading Minnesota Toward LGBTQ Equality

OutFront Minnesota’s mission is to create a state where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment or discrimination.

We envision a state where LGBTQ individuals have equal opportunities, protection and rights. We are working toward the day when all Minnesotans have the freedom, power and confidence to make the best choices for their own lives.

Our focus areas include:

  1. Community Organizing & Coalition Building
  2. Public Policy
  3. Anti-Violence
  4. Law
  5. Education & Training
  6. Youth and Schools Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Network
