Join us for our 10th Annual Come OUT & Celebrate Gay-la!

Get ready for a night of fun and inspiration! It’s time for OUT MetroWest’s 10th annual Come OUT & Celebrate Gay-la! There will be games and activities for all ages, food and drink, dancing, camaraderie with others who support LGBTQ+ youth, a photo booth, raffles, and more!

Last year, over 300 people joined us to raise more money than ever to keep our programs FREE for LGBTQ+ youth. Let’s break that record in 2023!

We hope you will join us this year and help us reach our goal of raising $150,000–more than ever before! ALL funds raised at this event go directly toward our critical LGBTQ+ programs – offered FREE of cost for LGBTQ+ youth.

Tickets are $35 until September 10 and $45 after, and include:

  • A delicious buffet dinner from the Jack’s Abby kitchen
  • One drink (alcoholic or non)
  • Dancing with DJ Mocha
  • Photo booth by the Framingham Public Library
  • Fun, inspiration, and the priceless knowledge that you are supporting LGBTQ+ youth! 

Additional drinks will be available for purchase. There will also be opportunities to enter a raffle for fun gift baskets and more!
