Out Youth serves Central Texas LGBTQIA+ youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults.
Founded in 1990, Out Youth has grown and changed over the years, but they’ve always retained their most important facet – providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ youth to come together, receive support, and make friends who understand who they are.
They host a variety of programs and services for youth and provide trainings and resources for parents, teachers, and community members.
Out Youth promotes the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being of sexual and gender minority youth so that they can openly and safely explore and affirm their identities.
Out Youth envisions a world where sexual and gender minority youth receive the support needed to develop positive self-images, empower themselves and become active citizens in their communities.

Not sure what all of the the letters mean in LGBTQIA+? We've got you.
L = lesbian (cisgender or transgender woman who is attracted to the same sex)
G = gay (generally used to describe a cisgender or transgender man who is attracted to the same sex. Also used as a broad term to describe any human who is attracted to the same sex as they identify as.)
B = Bisexual (a person who is attracted to both, binary (man/woman) sexes)
T = transgender (a person who identifies as a different gender than the body they were born into.)
Q = queer (an umbrella term for any sex or gender minority who are not heterosexual and/or cisgender.)
I = intersexual (a person born with both the sexual organs that identify a male and female body.)
A = asexual (not feeling sexually attracted to any person on the sexual or gender spectrum.)
+ = As we evolve as a society, we're learning that binary definitions are a societal construct. We're learning more every day about the spectrum of sexual identity (who one goes to bed as) and sexuality (who one goes to bed with). The + gives nod to that spectrum.
