SpeakOUT was founded in Boston in 1972 as Public Education Services, Inc. and is the longest-running LGBTQ speakers bureau in the country. We train individuals and organizations to use public speaking as a means of creating positive cultural change and we conduct educational programs about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer lives and issues. Our roots run deep within the greater Boston community and we’ve trained several generations of LGBTQ speakers who have gone on to contribute to the local community beyond our organization as political and business leaders, nonprofit professionals, community educators, and more. Hundreds of our speakers have told the stories of their lives in schools, colleges, religious classes, and corporate settings with the simple goal of opening minds and changing attitudes.
