OUT LOUD Festival
The theme for this year’s festival is Queer Futures. A driving question of the festival is: What do queer futures look like, and how do we create them?

At the Hangout, visual and performing artists will continue the celebration. A typewriter poet will be writing poems for guests live.

By highlighting the creative contributions of the queer community, OUT LOUD aims to celebrate diversity, foster appreciation for marginalized groups, and expand an atmosphere of inclusion for all.
I will personally be contributing to the festival by providing information on counseling and therapy. Feel free to visit me at The Hangout after the show.
