Featured Speakers

Mia Soetaert

Mia Soetaert

Board 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 600 youth who have attended Outloud meetings in the past 7 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.
