Why Outfest?

Our community is experiencing an all-out assault on our rights, our freedom and our lives. And being stuck at home, it is easy to feel even more isolated than ever. That is why the power of our stories and raising our collective voices is an essential part of the fight we find ourselves in now. 

Outfest depends on your financial contributions to run our advocacy, education, and development programs year-round on behalf of the LGBTQIA+ community and its artists through:

Outfest Now

The mission-driven LGBTQIA+ streaming platform available internationally

Outfest Forward

Mentoring and education for filmmakers and creators available nation-wide

Community Giving

Free Access to Outfest Now for economically challenged members of our LGBTQIA+ community
