Outhouse is a community and resource centre for LGBT people, their families and friends. It is based in central Dublin.
Its primary goal is to offer a safe space for people to inform, meet, organise and make things happen.
Outhouse is very often the first point of contact for people into the LGBT world and also the place in which lots of groups and organisations have started off in.
When we first constituted in 1996 there was virtually no LGBT services or spaces in Dublin, and over the years we’ve built up experience on how to make the centre sustainable.
The building is owned by, and held in trust for, the LGBT community by a company that is limited by guarantee (this means no individuals profit from the asset).
Outhouse staff and Board encourage wide participation, both in the use and running of the centre.
Outhouse’s volunteer base is crucial to its functioning and we welcome those who wish to contribute to the community with time or particular expertise.
If you need a space to meet, organise, celebrate or perform something, think of taking a look at the spaces that are available in Outhouse.
