About Outright Libertarians


Outright was formed in 1998 by a group of LGBTQ+ libertarians with the purpose to advance the message of individual liberty and how it correlates with gay rights issues within the United States. We are currently the only LGBTQ+ Libertarian organization, registered as a 501c4. We have four executive elected officers and three elected committee directors.

— Our Mission

Our goal is simple. Our goal is to be the bridge for gender and sexual minorities within the Libertarian Party. We also work to ensure that GSM issues are at the forefront of the liberty movement and are well represented by liberty candidates and the party. We also look to educate people on the importance of GSM rights and issues, and to have them have a better understanding of GSM people and culture.


— What We Do

We educate, raise awareness, create policy, and promote inclusion for the GSM community within the liberty movement. We speak out on GSM issues, and we give a platform for GSM people to be seen and heard. 


— The Magnificent 7
