As we celebrate Pride season, many members of our community are reminded that our history is rich and diverse, contributing to political discourse, activism, philanthropic outreach and broad cultural movements.

OUT LOUD has been formed to showcase our artistic legacy, defined in the broadest possible way, to include poets, musicians, artists, performers, and so on. Our goal is to foster a greater understanding of our lives, as portrayed through the arts, to educate and inform younger generations of our history, and to spread greater understanding and respect for diversity among the general public.

We hope to make this an annual arts event to complement the Long Beach Gay Pride Festival.
