Providing a safe space for LGBT people to self-organise groups and activities is at the core of Outhouse’s function. Our building at 105 Capel Street has three dedicated spaces that can be used for a variety of purposes – from holding meetings to hosting functions to staging performance. The Red Room and the Library, both on the first floor, have been operational for some years, we opened our mutli-functional theatre and venue space in the basement of the building, with its own street entrance and wheelchair access is more recent.
As Outhouse is a company limited by guarantee and a not-for-profit concern, every penny that comes in through rent or fundraising, goes back into the building or its services – none of it goes into the pockets of its Board of Directors. We focus on providing safe space within the community and we want to improve what we have and what we do. That is why it is important that LGBT groups, our friends and allies support us by renting space at Outhouse and putting out the word about the facilities we offer here.
