Register for the Out in the South Initiative: Central Appalachia Gathering Series
Join The STAY Project and Appalachian Community Fund for a series of gatherings bringing together the LGBTQIA+ Community in Central Appalachia. Together, we will create an inter-generational space to celebrate, connect, learn, and share our stories.
The goal of the Out in the South Initiative: Central Appalachia gatherings is to develop broader networks to support and sustain LGBTQIA+ organizations and individuals in our region. To achieve this goal, gatherings will be held in East Tennessee, East Kentucky, Southwest Virginia, and West Virginia. In late June, a regional gathering will bring participants together to hear our findings and plan next steps.
All gatherings are free and open to the public, including a catered meal (be sure to indicate dietary restrictions and other access needs below). Each gathering will last from 5:30pm-9pm.
For those who cannot attend in person, we will be holding video conference calls following each state gathering.
Please visit our Facebook Page (

For specific questions, feel free to contact the Project Director, Kendall Bilbrey at
NOTE: This registration form will be used as a central place to register for all events. Please indicate which event you'll be attending, we can't wait to see you there!
