Kindling Collective offers a range of LGBTQ affirming professional development trainings and workshops designed for businesses, brands, camps, and other organizations in the outdoor industry. As a queer-centered gear library, one of our focus areas is supporting others in reducing barriers to the outdoors for LGBTQ people and other historically marginalized people. Training requests are met on a first come, first serve basis and available via Zoom or in person. If you're interested in scheduling a training, you can contact us at


If you are a Maine-based organization that does not fall under the categories listed above both OUT Maine and MaineTransNet offer professional development and training opportunities on building welcoming and affirming communities, services, and programs for LGBTQ+ people.
