ABOUT BIG GAY FIELD DAY
The OUT Foundation is launching the first and only all-inclusive Big Gay Field Day for the LGBTQ+ community and our allies.
We create a space for all humans, no matter their sexual preference, gender-identity, or fitness-level to come together, #sweatforacause, and have a gay ol' time with some of our favorite childhood games and activities.
Our Big Gay Field Days put the FUN in fundraising as we aim to raise $10,000.00 in each of our Big Gay cities.
Funds raised will help The OUT Foundation to produce field days for LGBTQ+ youth, aptly called "Schools OUT Field Day."
The OUT Foundation is partnering with local LGBTQ+ youth organizations in major cities across the United States to facilitate an inclusive, fun, and safe space for our LGBTQ+ youth to be active in the summer months.
WHAT IS BIG GAY FIELD DAY?
Big Gay Field Day is a throwback to your grade school years and will include all of your childhood favorites...and some fun new games.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
To promote friendly competition between LGBTQ+ folks and our allies, to allow all sexualities, gender identities and fitness levels to participate in a fun day of community.
WHY SHOULD I SIGN UP?
I mean...are we going to have to peer pressure you like elementary school? All the cool kids are doing it.
