About Us

Outreach United was founded in 2006 by Gary Wood and his husband Bryant Johnson.  From its humble beginnings as a once a year "Coming Out Party" held in Gary and Bryant's home each year, the organization has turned into a noteworthy community ally.  Through our efforts we have raised over $350,000 since our inception for worthy LGBT non-profits such as the Montrose Center, MEN, Inc., and the Lesbian Health Initiative, just to name a few.  We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping bring a better and more positive awareness and understanding to the Houston LGBT community.  


We regularly host fund raising parties that are fun, raise awareness as well as money, and provide a sense of community and comradery for the Houston LGBT community and our allies.
