On this episode: art school, communism, and being out in the wild. We’re talking with Patrick Dunn, climber and founder of OUT in the Wild, an organization that makes the outdoors more inclusive for the LGBTQ+ community and teaching technical climbing skills.
Haling from the infamous beaches of the Jersey Shore, Patrick moved to the west coast in search of adventure and queer community. After struggling to find the queer outdoor community he hoped for, he started OUT in the Wild to create a space for LGBTQ+ folks to connect with each other in the outdoors and learn new skills. Patrick has been climbing since he was 18 years old and started guiding in 2019. Through guiding he loves to share his passion for climbing and the outdoors. In his spare time, he is also an artist and amateur chef!
