About Us

OUTinPerth is a website and associated social media channels focusing on diversity in sexuality and gender.

We cover a wide range of issues including local, national and international news, information about community groups and events, and the latest nightlife news.

Each day we talk to the most interesting people in the fields of politics, fashion, music and the arts. In OUTinPerth you’ll find conversations with everyone from the person down the street to superstars on the international stage.

OUTinPerth is proud to be involved in the community and supports a wide range of community groups and arts organisations including PFLAG WA and RTRFM.

OUTinPerth is created on the land of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country and its waters, and pay our respect to Elders past and present.

Mission and Values

We aim to

Connect a community, creating a sense of understanding of ourselves in relation to the people and places surrounding us.

Highlight positive role models showcasing their achievements, lessons and experiences.

Question our community’s practices, standards and behaviour.

Provide an understanding of what it is to be of diverse sexuality and/or gender in the 21st Century.

Encourage our audience to engage with the local community, to get out of the house and experience music, theatre, arts, politics and life.

We aim to be

Reliable, Conversational, Dynamic, Strong, Confident, Enjoyable, Intelligent, Anticipated, Sleek, Debatable, Desirable, Connecting, Cutting Edge, Factual, Transcending and Accessible.
