Up and Out: Revolution of Self
October 1-2, 2016
Up and Out: Revolution of Self was a free, multidisciplinary festival celebrating the artwork and identities of LGBTQIA+ youth from around the country. Featured work included visual art, performances, film, music, poetry, and more. The festival also offered workshops and panel discussions. Up and Out: Revolution of Self aimed to create a space where LGBTQIA+ youth are celebrated, encouraged, and amplified. Identities that are usually silenced become the norm, with a focus on the intersections between marginalized communities. Up and Out: Revolution of Self was curated by the Youth Leadership Council.
