The events we put on are decided by our iNSIDEoUT Youth Board during our annual Board Retreat.At the Retreat, we set our goals, brainstorm programming, and make our event calendar for the year. It’s a great time for us to get to know one another better, dream big, and imagine the future we are going to shape together.

See below for a description of the events we put on!

Annual Events

Pride Lock-In

It has become a tradition that iNSIDEoUT leads the Pride march around Duke’s East Campus in Durham. In 2018, we held a sleepover nearby and walked over together to begin our day of community celebrations.


This overnight workshop typically takes place in the winter. This past year's topic was Queer Justice for both allies and queer youth. We discussed ways of supporting on another, how to enact change in our communities, and visualized a more just and liberated future.

Awards Banquet and Gaiety

This is our end-of-year celebration where we honor the community of youth activists and the amazing teachers, organizations, parents, and others that support them. 

Halloween Party

Our Halloween Party is designed to be a safe space for queer youth and allies to come have fun, dress up, and dance of course! 

Queer Prom

Each year we host a Queer Prom where youth can come dance, have fun, and be their whole selves.Our most recent prom, It's Not a Phase: Metamorphosis, took place at the beautiful SEEDS community garden.
