LGBTQ people living outside the Portland Metro area face unique barriers to coming out and being out. Additionally, they often live in communities with limited or no resources for LGBTQ people, and as a result have to travel long distances to access the services and care they need. Basic Rights Oregon envisions working with local community leaders to tailor engagement to the needs of community members and enlist their participation in statewide efforts.
