We Are Out901.com

We were meeting people, native and transplants, and realized that we were not alone in wanting quick, accessible, and specific information on the LGBT Community in Memphis, TN. After being frustrated by the lack of current information available on the web for LGBT events, social groups, nightlife, and general LGBT information for Memphis (901 area code), we decided to create the hyper-local site Out901.com. Out901.com looks to embrace the entire LGBT scene in the Memphis area. We are not exclusive to LGBT individuals only, allies are always welcome.

Additionally, there is a passion for the city of Memphis. We want to help everyone love this city as much as we do. We believe that what makes a city feel like home is finding your community within it. I hope that this site helps you spend more time out and about with new and old friends, and less time searching from your living room couch. Let’s get OUT in the 901!

If this site is useful, I have done my job. Please feel free to reach me directly and tell me: What are we doing well, what we are not, and what we can do better.

Welcome to the home of basketball, BBQ, and the Blues.

And most importantly, welcome to your home!

Thank you and sincerely,




Out901.com was a project developed by Whitney Hardy. It was imagined as a tool to connect the Greater Memphis community with each other and cultural producers.
