To speak up, speak out, or move on. This is the central challenge faced by each of the characters this powerful collection of shorts. The voices you’ll meet range from timid to assertive to absolutely commanding, and once you share these six unforgettable journeys from across a diverse range of queer and trans experience, their voices will linger in your mind well into the future.

The opening night gala drive-in includes the awards presentation of the Outfest Fusion Awards to Michaela Coel and Andra Day. 

Complimentary food and a special cocktail included for attendees while supplies last!
