A Champion for LGBTQ+ Life and Culture

Our Programs

InQueery

InQueery provides learning opportunities on special topics and skills for personal and professional development in safe, inclusive environments.

InQueery is as much about meeting other people as it is about learning, sharing or creating. It also has the side benefit of building stronger LGBTQ+ communities. Registration for these events is currently free unless additional supplies are needed.

Sage Rochester

Sage Rochester is an affiliate of SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) the world’s oldest & largest non-profit agency addressing the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender elders and has affiliates nationwide.

As an affiliate of SAGE USA (Services and Advocacy for GLBTQI Elders) we receive up-to-the-minute information on research and policy issues that effect older adults and have access to state and national resources.

Youth Program

The Out Alliance Youth Program is dedicated to empowering LGBTQ+ young people ages 13-20, to reach their fullest potential by providing a safe environment in which to explore their identity, learn important life skills and to develop leadership skills.

Shoulders to Stand On

Our feature-length documentary, Shoulders to Stand On, reveals the largely unknown and undocumented history of Rochester’s LGBTQ+ community and its influences across the nation.

Renown as the city of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, Rochester, NY has a long-standing history of being at the forefront of social justice. With the spark of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, Rochester quickly rose to the challenge once again with the birth of the gay rights movement.

Gallery Q

Gallery Q provides an opportunity for community members to experience art and for artists to bring their work to the community. At Gallery Q all of the art and the artists are supportive of LGBTQ+ identities. Gallery Q hosts exhibits of different styles and mediums, including photography, painting, sculpture as well as traditional artisan crafts.

Transgender and Gender Expansive Programs

The Out Alliance is proud to facilitate support and social groups for transgender individuals and their families.
