Your support can make a real difference.

Since 1997, Outhouse has been a vibrant and safe space for LGBTQ+ people, groups and organisations that is inclusive of the diversity within our communities. Much has been achieved to progress LGBTQ+ rights in Ireland, but many members of our communities still need a safe haven like Outhouse to seek support, get together, and organise.

We rely on the support of donors, fundraisers, and volunteers to ensure that our doors remain open to the tens of thousands of people who visit our centre every year. Your generous donations, no matter how big or small, make a real difference in helping us to provide essential services, connection, and support for our communities.
