OUT in the Wild's affinity outdoor programs are meant to inspire and educate the LGBTQIA2S+ community and instill confidence so folks can feel comfortable in outdoor spaces! Our programs range from single day to multi-day programs. 

What is an Affinity Space? 

An affinity space is a place where learning happens amongst a group of individuals who affiliate themselves based on shared identity, values, interests and goals. Our affinity programs are meant to be a space for LGBTQIA2S+ folks to come together and learn while creating connections and building community.
