Populations We Serve

  • Queer: We use this as an inclusive term for anyone who self-identifies as queer
  • Trans* and Gender Non-Conforming: Wilderness trips have historically used gender as a term of classification.  At TVOP we recognize that for some of us that’s confusing, prohibitive and offensive.  We strive to be an inclusive organization and offer trips specifically geared to be inclusive of our trans*, queer, non-binary and differently gendered community. 
  • Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual people
  • Intersex people
  • Allies and Family Members of the LGBTQ+ community: While we are primarily focused on creating a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community to experience nature, we are always appreciative and welcoming to our allies!
