Portland Outright is building the power of low-income LGBTQ+ young people in Maine through intersectional organizing for gender, racial, and economic justice. Our work is led by queer and trans young people from low-income communities in Maine who are combating poverty, homelessness, incarceration, and racism from the seat of personal experience. We are a community of people who are invested in each other, building deep connections, sharing both our struggle and joy, while fighting for each other's dignity and survival. Join us!
