OUTniagara supports Niagara’s local 2SLGBTQ+ community, works to amplify the voices in our community, acts as a public policy advocate and helps to build relationships within the community. In addition to adding your voice, members:

  • can vote at the Annual Meeting of Members

  • can join Board working groups and committees that guide the organization’s work.

Membership Year: Membership is valid until the next Meeting of Members, which usually takes place in the spring (between March and June of each year).
