Up And Out: Revolution Of Self says
Up and Out: Revolution of Self is a free, multidisciplinary, two-day festival at Intermedia Arts celebrating the artwork and identities of LGBTQIA+ youth from around the country. Featured work includes visual art, performances, film, music, poetry, and more! The festival also offers workshops and panel discussions, which are open to everyone.
