This fourth annual event is a three-day gathering for those of us LGBTQ people who are living, creating, working, and organizing in rural communities and small towns.

Out in the Open is a space to vent, strategize, connect, build, reflect, think, experience, and make. Folks from any rural community or small town are welcome to join us although we anticipate the majority of attendees to be from the Northeast US.

We encourage participants to bring in to all of these sessions thoughts, questions, and strategies connected to struggles for justice against racism, classism, misogyny, incarceration, police brutality, ableism, fascism, transphobia, and other oppressions.

In 2018, we’re adding full- and half-day Friday Field Trips. We’re seeing these Field Trips as a way for attendees to get to know a smaller group of summit participants before we’re with the whole group on Saturday, to dig in deeply to a single topic, and to experience and support some local Brattleboro organizing.
