Live Out Fest:

Celebrating LGBTQ+ Identity & Freedom

Kicking off on National Coming Out Day, Live Out Fest is a tribute to the healing, liberating, revolutionary power of art to the LGBTQ+ community. 

Featuring the World Premiere of “Not In My House," a collaboration between Kristi Faulkner Dance & Ruth Ellis Center: original live performance blending the aesthetics of vogue and contemporary dance to explore LGBTQ identity and challenge gender norms though the creative re-imagining of our coming out stories.

Live Out seeks to bring the local community together from all corners of metro Detroit to celebrate and connect with each other through our collective commitment to standing in our truth and consciously live out our most beautiful, authentic, queer selves — expressed through the creation and integration of art in all its forms. 

Featuring dance, music, spoken-word poetry, performance art, comedy, burlesque, and more from local artists and creatives in the LGBTQ+ community.
