Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The very first edition of the LOUD & PROUD festival launches this year with events planned in Paris, Nantes and Lyon — concerts, film screenings, workshops and more — aimed at bringing greater visibility to queer music and culture in France. The Paris leg of the festival features four nights of concerts at La Gaîté Lyrique, with an international line-up of queer artists and performers (heavy on North American talent) including New York rappers Le1f and Cakes Da Killa, Toronto electronic band Austra, New Orleans 'bounce music' pioneer Big Freedia, Seattle-based Perfume Genius and the Kansas City creative project SSION (pronounced 'shun'). The festival also invites guest djs from Paris's own LGBTQ+ collectives, including Flash Cocotte, PopinGays, House of Moda, Peanut Butler, and Barbi(e)turix.
