Our rich history and strong regional legacy begins in Metro New York in 1983. For nearly 40 years, we’ve helped LGBTQ professionals advance their careers through networking and educational events as a volunteer-driven, member-supported nonprofit.
Today, as social distancing eases we are resuming our national expansion towards a network of city chapters after a strong launch in 2019 just prior to COVID-19.
Become a part of our growing community of LGBTQ professionals.
We welcome corporate partners who want to put their brand front and center with the LGBTQ community and help us grow our national network. Learn more about the benefits we offer partners, including FlexMemberships for your LGBTQ employees and their supportive allies in your organization.
Individuals and business owners are invited to become Supporting Members for free and discounted admission to in-person and virtual events and other benefits.
Expansion of Out Professionals’ new chapter in Los Angeles with a kick-off Out Pro Lounge attended by 230+ professionals. Community interest was so great that we were forced to cut off advance registration two weeks prior to the event. Similarly, the launch of a chapter in Houston planned for April 2020, was poised for similar success before postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We quickly evolved the organization to online, virtual events due to social distancing, including the launch of our well-received Life Preserver webinar series as well as virtual networking mixers guided by professional moderators.
During lockdown, we leaned forward to further develop our plans for a systematic national expansion.
