Out on the Island (OOTI) -- Alameda's LGBT Network

Out on the Island (OOTI)

Out on the Island (OOTI) was formed in the early 1990s to address anti-lgbtqi bigotry in Alameda, CA. At that time, Alameda made the national news as an "Island of Intolerance." During its activist phase, it published a newsletter called "The Breeze," conducted local candidate interviews and forums, and developed and maintained a positive working relationship with local officials.

Alameda Lesbian Potluck Society - ALPS

Alameda Lesbian Potluck Society

The Alameda Lesbian Potluck Society (ALPS) was the precursor of OOTI, and was a fun, informal social group that met periodically for potlucks. Think 1970s -- with a sense of humor about it.
