There's a new queer festival on the horizon, the first of its kind in the US. OUTsider Film & Arts Festival was officially announced today, and it's unique in its cross-discliplinary interplay, offering attendees a multi-arts queer festival and conference in Austin, Texas come next February. 


“Our intent is to create a queer festival that defies the rules in ways that inspire and rejuvenate," Artistic Director Curran Nault said. "By making the festival multi-arts, we hope to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and creation that is not possible at single-art festivals. By including a non-traditional conference component, in which artistic practice and intellectual engagement will be entirely entwined, we hope to remove barriers between artists, scholars and general audiences.”

OUTsider will officially "introduce its misfit self" at a kick-off event on May 1st at Cheer Up Charlie’s in Austin. Entitled “MayDayGayDay” -- in honor of the May 1st holiday -- this "bacchanalian celebration will include a maypole gaypole, flower-grams and other spring-themed delights." More over, the day will feature a line-up of local artists who will perform outside of their usual medium: filmmakers will dance, painters will sing, drag queens will go butch, etc... Which all sounds like an absolutely fabulous time to us.
