OutLine’s members are people who support our work to help Rainbow people throughout Aotearoa access support, information and a sense of community. They elect our Board, and help us make decisions about how we run the organisation.

Who can join

Any Rainbow person in Aotearoa who is supportive of OutLine’s aims and is not currently employed or contracted by OutLine can apply to become a full OutLine member. OutLine full membership gives people the right to vote and speak at OutLine General Meetings – this means our members are crucial in shaping the direction of the organisation.

People who support OutLine’s purpose and aims but are not eligible for full membership may apply to be an associate member, which allows people to speak but not vote at General Meetings. Staff members are automatically associate members.

Membership is free

There is currently no fee for membership.

If you’d like, you can add an optional donation to OutLine when you sign up using the form below. Your donations help OutLine to provide Rainbow-affirming mental health services throughout Aotearoa.

How to apply

You can apply for membership using the form below or at OutLine’s Wild Apricot membership site.

All applications must include the applicant’s name and contact details, and must be approved by the OutLine Governance Board. Note that per the OutLine constitution, all applications for membership must be received at least seven days in advance of a General Meeting.

Approved members will have their name entered into a confidential members register. Each year, members will be asked whether they wish to renew their membership.
