This week we touch base with Liam from Outdoor lads.
What is Outdoor Lads?
OutdoorLads is a friendly group of gay, bisexual and trans men who get together to enjoy outdoor adventures and activities. Our eventstake place all over the UK and we also organise expeditions worldwide. We go on hikes, we climb, we cycle, we go camping, organise hostel weekends, do watersports - there's something for everyone, no matter your experience, so come with us and get out more!
Who is it aimed at?
OutdoorLads is aimed at gay, bi and trans men across the UK, of all ages and backgrounds, who share our values. People who want to get out more, and have fun with friendly, like-minded people.
Is there anything else that people need to know?
We’re the UK’s largest outdoor pursuit charity for gay, bisexual and trans men, with over 2000 active members and several thousand PAYG members! We have events on every weekend of the year, and many mid-week too. Our events are all run by volunteers, and we have a real inclusive ethos. We even have the OutdoorLads Foundation, which can support members facing hardship to access our events, and have a concession scheme whereby activities are cheaper for members aged under 30, in full time education, or receiving certain benefits.
When do you meet and where can people get more information on this?
Everything we do is co-ordinated through our website, outdoorlads.com where it’s really easy to search for events near you. Don’t delay, get signed up and #GetOutMore!
