Out In Front values inclusivity; members of communities of color, communities of faith, and other underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please read the application carefully and answer thoughtfully. We're looking for a diversity of opinions, backgrounds, and circumstances... don't just tell us what you think we want to hear! Because we're asking you to reflect thoughtfully, the application will take some time. Because of technical limitations, the application has to be completed in one session. Consider starting your answers in a text document on your computer and pasting them over once you're done. Paper applications are available by email request to the address below.
Because of the time commitment, Out In Front may not be for everyone, but we aim to serve everyone with an interest in LGBTQ leadership in Seattle. The idea behind the application and interview process is to encourage you to think about where you've been and how you'd like to grow in your community leadership, and through that give you an opportunity to introduce yourself to us.
Consider having your up-to-date resume as a Word document or PDF ready before you begin completing your application.

Out In Front expects all participants to fully abide by the provisions set forth in the Participation Agreement.

Out In Front certification and participation in the graduation ceremony are dependent on having met your tuition obligations.
Full tuition for the program is $1,500 per participant. The actual cost to Out In Front to run the program is approximately $3,000 per person per year. We are able to sustain the tuition rate through the generous support of community members, local businesses, and other Out in Front donors.
Out In Front encourages participants to seek full or partial tuition reimbursement from their employer whenever possible. A suggested Letter of Request for Tuition Reimbursement is available upon request for participants to modify for their own place of employment.
Participants with financial need may request a tuition adjustment based on a sliding scale. If you would like to request a tuition adjustment, please complete the Sliding Scale Request Form.
