This series is open to all LGBTQ+ folks.
At AdventurHER Travel, we’re focused on opening up the outdoor adventure sport world to more folks by bringing WTFNB folks into outdoors spaces and teaching new sports and skills in a world that traditionally has high barriers to entry for many. There’s a long way to go.
The weekend of September 21st, we’re opening up our adventures to all LGBTQ folks and partnering with OutFront Minnesota, a non-profit organization leading Minnesota to LGBTQ equity. 10% of the proceeds of each event is donated to OutFront MN to support the work the organization is doing to fight for LGBTQ justice through community and policy.
Join us on one or all of the adventures by registering below! Registration required by Wednesday, September 18.
