Venture Out

15 mins


For Muir and Thoreau, wilderness was therapy, for they were nothing if not out-of-step with the larger society. Now, the balm of the outdoors is helping members of the LGBTQ community. On a trip organized by The Venture Out Project, trans backpackers explain how much it means for them to be themselves, together, outdoors. “There are two things we share,” says the organization’s founder Perry Cohen. “We share a love of the outdoors and we share being queer — and those are two really powerful, powerful things.”
