Empowering and celebrating thriving LGBTQ+ communities across Nebraska through community-building and advocacy.
A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
OutNebraska launched as a statewide organization in 2019. In the years since, we have helped our communities grow in their advocacy, celebrations, and education of LGBTQ+ people.
Nebraska is home to numerous volunteer organizations working toward LGBTQ+ equality. As a staffed, statewide organization, OutNebraska is uniquely positioned to bring these different groups together. Through advocacy, celebration, and education, we have helped organizations and individuals across the state access resources and push for change. We make it our business to know who is in the room, who wants to be involved, and what other community partners share our vision for equality. That’s where OutNebraska has really thrived: as a hub of information, resources, and connections.
From the panhandle to the Missouri River, Nebraska has seen some improvement in acceptance for LGBTQA+ people and families. 2021 was the year of Pride. More Pride events happened in 2021 than ever before including in Alliance, Scottsbluff, Hastings, Grand Island, Kearney, Norfolk, and more. We are seeing more rural communities celebrating Pride and moving towards embracing LGBTQ+ members of their community more fully.
Support for LGBTQ+ Nebraskans has also come from our business communities. We launched Nebraska Competes in April 2021, which is a nonpartisan coalition of businesses who believe Nebraska needs nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQA+ people. These businesses are located across the state, showing that Nebraska is ready to move to greater acceptance and inclusion.
We are proud of the work we are supporting across the state and will continue our efforts to push LGBTQ+ equality forward in Nebraska.
