Coming out is both the revelation of a single fact and a powerful spark that ignites a process of reorienting minds to support LGBT rights. LGBT Minnesotans can provide more sparks by coming out to more people: not just to close friends and family but to neighbors, former teachers and colleagues. The Great Minnesota Outing is making introductions between LGBT Minnesotans and their neighbors so together we can defeat the November 6th amendment that would limit Minnesotans freedom to marry.
We're all on this outing together.
Good people helping good people.
A broad coalition of organizations and community and business leaders seeking to defeat the amendment.
A next generation branding firm that combines senior strategic leadership with network based creative development.
A diverse collection of professionals with deep roots in law and progressive public policy
Ensuring that same sex couples and their families have equal rights and considerations under Minnesota law.

Press release announcing the Great Minnesota Outing
The Great Minnesota Outing went live today as part of the effort to defeat a Minnesota amendment that would limit freedom of marriage in the state.
“Everybody has the right to be who they are,” Diane Staff said. “If they want to be married, then they should be able to be married.”
Great Minnesota Outing’s Nov. 6 goal is to introduce all Minnesotans to one or more people in their community who are LGBT and to help defeat the amendment.
Great Minnesota Outing was born as a way to help institutionalize the coming out process to tell all of those people who normally don’t get told.
The concept is to come out online to reach neighbors, friends & colleagues who are more likely to support gay rights if they’re aware they know a gay or lesbian person.
