We Illuminate the LGBTQ+ Experience

VideoOut is creating the world’s first digital hub for all the information about LGBTQ+ identity, history, and culture. By us, for all! We work with queer and trans experts and creators to deeply explore who we are, where we’ve come from, and how we’ve contributed to society. We answer every question about the LGBTQ+ community, utilizing elevated animations, data visualizations, researched articles, interviews, archival film and photography, maps and more.

The Language Project

The Origins, Evolution, and Current usage of LGBTQ+ Terminology.

Words, just like the people they describe, can be imperfect, incomplete, and complicated. They can be messy AF. But, when wielded correctly, they can also help us define ourselves, understand the world around us, and find our chosen family. VideoOut is working with the Google News Initiative and Polygraph to create this living resource of language that will grow as we add more terms. It’s more than a glossary — it’s an investigation of how we talk about LGBTQ+ people.
