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, by our parent company, Aequalitas Media, 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.
OUTvoices has local bureaus around the country to maintain relationships with the local LGBTQ+ community. In 2020, Aequalitas Media also acquired Camp Magazine in Kansas City (founded 2004), Out and About Nashville (founded 2002), and Echo Magazine (founded 1989) in Phoenix. In 2021 each location was rebranded and brought into the OUTvoices family to better serve each community and to amplify our voices and our stories.
