Brushing Aside Tobacco: Painting a Brighter Future

Due to unforeseen circumstances coupled with the busy Pride season, OUT Against Big Tobacco LA has decided to postpone the Tobacco Advocacy Day event originally scheduled for May 31 to a future date. This will allow us to be more intentional with our planning and ensure we can maximize participation and impact for our community. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to set a new date. 

Learn more about LGBTQ+ tobacco-related health disparities: 

OUT Against Big Tobacco Los Angeles (OABT-LA) is the LGBTQ+ regional project in Los Angeles made up of LGBTQ+ individuals and community organizations that collectively work together to address tobacco control and health inequity issues within California’s LGBTQ+ community.

We make policy changes targeted to reduce the tobacco-related health disparities within the LGBTQ+ community. We’re fighting back and working to enact the following policies throughout Los Angeles County and the state of California:

  1. Restrict the availability of ALL flavors in ALL tobacco products. No Exceptions.
  2. No longer allow redemption of discounts and point-of-sale price reduction promotions for the purchase of ANY tobacco product.
