What To Expect

We want the world to know! Get ready to let it* show on Friday October 22! We’ll be live and face to face at the Prado in Balboa Park. And oh what we have planned! The Living Out Loud Coming Out gala. This time around we’re gonna do it like you never knew it!

Stepping Stone has been the cornerstone of the LGBTQ recovery community for more than 40 years. The evidenced-based treatment strategies they employ have helped thousands of people in San Diego recover from the disease of addiction.

LOL 2021 is a hybrid event celebrating our return to seeing each other after a long year of isolation. The event will be held at The Prado in Balboa Park on Friday, October 22. The theme is The Coming Out gala, where we encourage Stepping Stone supporters to “come out” in support of the organization.

We can’t wait to see you! Put on your best debutante chic outfit and join us at the Prado live and face to face. It’s a great opportunity to come out to see friends and support Stepping Stone!

Sponsorship Program

Living Out Loud has come to be known as an exciting night of love and celebration honoring Stepping Stone of San Diego and it’s 45 years of drug and alcohol treatment services specializing in the LGBTQ community.  

This year we will be coming out for Stepping Stone with a Hybrid event with onsite event taking place at The Prado in Balboa Park and a one hour broadcast event for individuals and groups to tune into to be part of the celebration.    This hybrid event will allow more people than ever to participate and share in the fun and remote guests get a party pack shipped to them to help be part of the celebration.  As we plan our event for 2021, we would like to invite you to partner with us as an event sponsor. 

Our guests will be celebrating and supporting Stepping Stone of San Diego which provides a long-term residential recovery program, outpatient treatment program, aftercare services, sober living homes and support services for those affected by HIV and/or addiction. Targeted for the LGBT community, but open to all, our services transform alcoholics and addicts into miracles. 

Your support will ensure that Stepping Stone continues to provide life-saving/changing services to those in need during these challenging times. We also want the event to promote your business as we bring together more attendees than ever before, all who are extremely loyal to those businesses and organizations that support our cause.

We look forward to you joining us for Living Out Loud 2021 to celebrate our mission and our community. There are various sponsorship levels available and each includes different benefits as a thank you for supporting Stepping Stone.  We can also create a custom sponsorship matching your budget. Please sign up as a sponsor online at steppingstonesd.org/lol or contact us for assistance.

Thank you.
