September 27-29th, an expected 65 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people living in small towns and rural communities from around the Northeast will gather for the 5th annual Out in the Open Summit for rural & small town LGBTQ folks.

The Summit is convened by Out in the Open (OO), a Brattleboro, Vermont based organization connecting rural LGBTQ people to build community, visibility, knowledge, and power. The Summit is open to any LGBTQ-identified person of rural and/or small town experience.

The event will be hosted in a camp-setting that encourages retreat and collaboration. This year’s theme of Rest & Resilience will balance hands-on opportunities, connecting with the land, and body awareness, alongside discussion and movement building. Space for rural and small town LGBTQ experiences is often absent from conversations that focus on the urban queer experience.

Sessions will be facilitated, but this is a participatory weekend with no presenters or ‘experts’. The gathering convenes with the understanding that the daily experiences of living, working, and organizing as rural and small town LGBTQ people make each person an expert.

For the first time, travel stipends are available for BIPOC and low- or no-income individuals.

Information including a full schedule of events, and registration (required), is available at weareoutintheopen.org/summit
