The outdoors has a diversity problem, not with the landscapes or the weather, but with the people who participate. Today's guest is changing that by getting people out, outside. Elyse Rylander is the executive director of OUT There Adventures, an organization that takes queer young people on outdoors adventures to help them develop positive identities and individual empowerment. In this episode, we chat about how the outdoors can serve as a safe space for queer youth and why it's important for everyone to care about the movement.
You can't get your needs met in the same way as a queer person as you can if you are someone with a less marginalized identity.
