Our main focus is providing scholarships to students attending college to pursue an art-related degree. Arts Out Loud also hosts industry-specific events that offer connections with working professionals in their field of interest in the hopes of building lifelong connections.

Young LGBTQ people who have been stigmatized, bullied, or isolated because of their sexual orientation or gender identity often lack critical family, financial, and community support. These are kids with great promise and talent and they often give up because they don’t believe success is possible for them. We empower them with resources for expanding their education and strengthening their sense of pride. Because they matter.
