Featured Speakers

Mia Soetaert

Mia Soetaert

Vice President, Youth Leader

Mia has been involved with Outloud since the very beginning and has helped facilitate as the group has changed from 4 kids in a church basement to over 500 youth who have attended Outloud meetings in the past 6 years. She is a public speaker to crowds of several thousand, a council president and leadership mentor in her High School, and an advocate for LGBTQ equality in her community. She has had many struggles like most LGBTQ youth, but continues to find her calling and true joy from helping others become comfortable with themselves. Mia also enjoys reading, movies, and most of all her music.

Terry Soetaert

Terry Soetaert

Executive Director

Terry started Outloud after learning how powerful Camp Fyrefly was for his daughter Mia but was surprised that a group did not alreadly exist. He wanted kids to feel supported and also free to be themselves in a space that was cool enough for them to come to. With over 25 years of sales and marketing background he jumped in and created Outloud with Mia and a handful of advisors. Terry loves speaking about his experience as parent and how other parents can overcome their past to become their child's greatest ally. When he is working on Outloud he spends time with wonderful wife Natalie and their 2 other children. He loves MMA, camping, and is into super heros.
