A.O.A. strengthens Acadiana's LGBTQ community through social events, political action, educational programming, community building and advocacy.
A.O.A. envisions a vibrant and open Acadiana offering full workplace protection, recognition of relationships, and freedom from oppression.
The interests and concerns of all classes, subgroups, and minorities within the LGBTQ community in Acadiana are valuable and should be heard and fairly represented.
All people, regardless of individual socio-economic condition or degree of technological sophistication, should have an opportunity to participate fully in organizational activities.
All activities and efforts, including legislative and policy advocacy, of Acadiana OUTspoken Alliance will be required to be fully inclusive of the entire LGBTQ community, including recognition of the priorities and needs of transgender people and LGBTQ people of color.
