OUT/LOUD is Eugene’s queer and trans women’s performance fest, celebrating the music, poetry, and art of queer women, transwomen, non-binary folks, femme identifying people, and AFAB individuals. This year we will be celebrating our 17th anniversary of the festival on May 25th with a diverse performance from locals and out of town artists on the Queer and Trans spectrum.
This event is important to the University of Oregon’s vibrant LGBTQ scene as a space where we are not only validating the work of some of some of the most underrepresented groups, but also engaging in liberating play and enjoying community. The reality of female queer and transwomen artists being paid historically less than their cisgender and/or male/masculine counterparts; supporting events like OUT/LOUD is fundamental to helping queer and trans women safely express their personhood. While we must honor the struggles of queer and transwomen of all races, ethnicities, abilities, and ages, OUT/LOUD offers us the opportunity to also celebrate this resilient group.
