Come join local OutRight supporters in Seattle for OUTRISING, an evening of inspiration and community at the new urban basecamp, The Collective! We’ll enjoy delicious appetizers, drinks and babycakes from Cupcake Royale, and mix and mingle in a beautiful, warm and comfortable new space in South Lake Union.
Our guest speakers will include OutRight’s Executive Director Jessica Stern, who has recently traveled to Beirut and Iraq, and was cited in the recent decision by the Supreme Court of India to strike down their anti-homosexuality law. We will also welcome OutRight’s Columbia Law School Public Service Fellow Ping “Hoping” Hou, who works with OutRight’s Asia and United Nations programs. Hoping is a lawyer from Suzhou in South China who founded an LGBTIQ organization and plans to help corporations become better human rights advocates.
