This year, OUT MetroWest’s Come OUT & Celebrate event won’t be a gala.

After two years of virtual (and wonderful) Come OUT & Celebrate events, we are very excited to welcome the community back in person! Come OUT & Celebrate at our our re-invented, come-as-you-like affair on Thursday, October 20 from 6:30-9pm at Jack’s Abby in Framingham! Help us raise critical funds that support our FREE programs for LGBTQ+ youth–while building community and being inspired. Purchase your tickets at

General Admission tickets to this ALL-AGES event are just $35 each and include: 

  • Light snacks
  • One drink (alcoholic or non)
  • Both indoor and outdoor spaces

  • The priceless knowledge that you are supporting LGBTQ+ youth! 

Additional food and drink will be available for purchase. There will also be opportunities to enter a raffle for fun gift baskets and participate in a live auction.

Funds raised at this event are critical to keeping our programs FREE for LGBTQ+ youth. And we could NOT do it without our EVENT SPONSORS.
