When the world is so complicated,
the simple gift of friendship is within all of our hands.

Maria Shriver

You are not alone.

Teen Outlook (TOUT) is a gay straight alliance open to 9th - 12th grade teens in the Spartanburg area.  It was founded to minimize isolation among LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning) teens and to promote friendship and understanding among all teens along the sexual identity and gender expression continuum.

Teen Outlook (TOUT) provides a safe and nurturing space for teens to explore identity and develop life skills through interpersonal interactions.  TOUTís intent is to

∑   Enable all youth to fulfill their potential and live their lives with honesty and dignity, without having to pretend, lie, or hide due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

∑   Provide a space that is welcoming, safe, affirming, and empowering where everyone is treated with respect, compassion, and dignity

∑   Promote and support happy, healthy lives in a safe and welcoming community.

We meet the 2nd and 4th Sunday afternoons from 4 - 6 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg. 
Although the UU Church generously supplies us with meeting space, our meetings and programming are non-religious.
