Here at Newport Out, we work to promote our beautiful seaside city as a travel destination to the LGBT+ community. We strive to make Newport as open, inviting, and accessible as possible for LGBT visitors and locals, alike. “LGBT+ community” is a broad umbrella term that includes people who identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, trans, or other gender/sexuality expansive identities.
**A portion of our advertising revenue goes to supporting the Interweave Born This Way Prom. We are dedicated to the safety and well being of LGBT+ youth and making the saying “ it gets better” a reality.
The Born this way prom originated nine years ago as a prom for the LGBTQ community. The reasoning for this is because at the time, traditional proms sometimes excluded LGBTQ Youths. It’s free to all students and all the resources for the prom are donated. Additionally, any donations collected are given to support Youth Pride in Providence.
