Since its inception in 2015, The Venture Out Project has led thousands of LGBTQ+ backpackers, hikers, skiers, snowshoers and paddlers on outdoor adventures. In recent years there has been a clear increase in the number of outdoor affinity groups and diverse hikers hitting the trails. Yet we still get the question, “I don’t need my own hiking group, why do you? I thought the outdoors was for everyone.” Join Venture Out’s founder, Perry Cohen, for an informal discussion around queer identity in the outdoors, why so many people have flocked to Venture Out, and why more come every year. No experience necessary, this talk is open to all!
