Adventure OUT! promotes adventure, health, wellness and community among gay, bisexual, queer, transgender and non-binary and MSM (men who have sex with men) individuals in New Mexico. We integrate HIV prevention with experiential education.
Since being founded in 1996, Adventure OUT! has given these individuals and their communities a way to come together in a substance-free setting, a space where they can talk about personal wellness and the wellness of their communities while building stronger connections to self, to nature and to others.
We’re also fun. And very engaging. And another big part of our work is outreach—reaching out to our communities. No organization in New Mexico is doing this type of prevention work—building community that comes from being out in nature. This brings people together in a way few other programs do, and helps folks learn about the different resources and access different organizations in different ways and talk about all these things.
