LGBTQIA+Allies in Glendale, California
glendaleOUT is a grass-roots organization dedicated to building, evolving, and moving forward queer voice in the narrative that is Glendale.
We do this through political action, community building, and social connection. We participate, we event, we petition, we zine, we protest, we video, we support and volunteer, and we had that Zoom pajama party that one time.

Adriana was a trans woman murdered in her apartment which was then set on fire in Yerevan, Armenia.
Lauri Carleton was an ally murdered for displaying a Pride flag at her store in Lake Arrowhead, California
Communities are being whipped into an anti-queer frenzy by people who use the rhetoric of hate for gain and profit. glendaleOUT and GUSD Parents for Public Schools have distributed over 70 of the hundred flags we are offering for FREE to any community member, organization, or business that would like to display it in memory of these women, and in support of healthy, inclusive, tolerant communities for all. glendaleOUT@gmail.com
We suck at fundraising; we need money!
