With the equal rights campaigns for LGBT Americans at the forefront of the public consciousness, there's no better time for a positive, cultural online publication to highlight the gay community's most wonderful aspects, focusing on arts, entertainment, professionalism, wellness, and LGBT advocacy both now and in the future.
It's been amazing to see the widespread support for LGBT causes recently- but changing your profile picture on social media to a plus sign doesn't actually change the world. Posting a comment on a web forum doesn't change the world. Still, the world needs changing, and the only way to do that is through action.
Out Impact, a national non-profit recently based in New York City, has been around for two years- built entirely on the love and passion of its editorial staff. But as we grow, after two years showcasing the gay community, we need funds to keep our best writers, grow our online publication at OutImpact.com and become the large scale resource for both the LGBT community and its straight allies that we know we can be. With millions of hits annually, we're reaching a lot of eyes- but it's time to reach more.
Every penny of your donation is tax-deductible and a significant portion of every dollar you invest in Out Impact will go to LGBTQ outreach, and LGBT activist charities. We're committed to making lives better for both LGBT Americans with the greatest need, and the community as a whole.
In addition to the tax benefits of your donation, we've set up a wide variety of perks for your donation, at differing levels:
Please, donate whatever you can- every penny helps. But for certain levels, we’re offering significant rewards.
