Please join us on Saturday, June 29, 2019 for our second annual OUT LOUD festival celebrating the artistic and cultural contributions of the greater LGBTQ+ communities in Long Beach and beyond. We are so thrilled to be presenting this beautiful, dynamic multi-disciplinary showcase of art, poetry, music, dance, comedy, and more. The event is free, and all are welcome. The festival will happen across two venues: a theater performance at the Art Theatre from 1:30-4:00 and a music and art reception at the Hangout from 4:00-6:00.

The theater program is free and open to all. Hailing originally from the Phillipines, singer Angel Bonilla will headline the event, sharing her story as the first trans woman on NBC’s The Voice. A choral orchestra called United Voices will serenade the audience, and a pair of dancers from CSULB will perform original choreography. Held2Gether improv troupe will make us laugh, while queer anthropology professor Gregory Mattson will couch the performances in social context. Literary artists will share poetry, short fiction, and short essays from the heart. One young woman was chosen to present her youth essay on “Queer Futures.”

***Mission of OUT LOUD***
By highlighting the immense creative contributions of the queer community, OUT LOUD aims to celebrate diversity, foster appreciation for LGBTQ+ art and culture, and expand an atmosphere of inclusion for all. We believe in healing the divides in society through art. Art shows us who we are, and reflects our lives back at us. This multi-disciplinary festival knows there are no bounds to the creativity of the LGBTQ+ communities, and we are here to recognize their talents.
If Pride celebrates who we are, OUT LOUD celebrates what we create.
