OUTvoices Our community, our voices

Who We Are

OUTvoices is easy — we show the LGBTQ+ community how to live a life that is more engaged. Whether we're talking about fashion, food, drink, beauty, or travel, we bring authenticity and understanding to it all. As our name implies, we are a voice for everyone in our community from lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or questioning) to the plus: the non-conforming, the fluid, the non-binary, all the way to our allies. OUTvoices offers articles, posts, how-to's, and guides on a wide range of topics, from how to apply foundation properly to how to cook a family meal.

Founded in 2021 in Chicago, Illinois, we pride ourselves on sharing authentic, interesting, and informative experiences from a local and national perspective. We have a team of seasoned writers based around the country, who test the products, mix the cocktails, cook the food recipes, and meet with the brands we cover.
