QWOC+ Boston would like to invite local LGBTQI performers and spoken word artists of color to submit their profiles, bios, and experience for performance consideration at OUTSPOKEN, our annual queer people of color spoken word and performance showcase, which takes place this year on Thursday August 5th @ PRECINCT during our 3rd Annual QWOC WEEK.

Please send along any materials that will help us learn about your amazing work and we will reach out to you if we foresee an opportunity for you to perform/be involved this year. You may use the guidelines below to submit an inquiry:
Send an email to outspoken@qwocboston.org with the following information:
  • SUBJECT: Performer for OUTSPOKEN*
  • Full Name + Stage Name (if applicable)
  • Email
  • Phone Number
  • Link to online profile/website
  • Some past performances
  • Brief Bio or Summary of Work
  • Please mention how you identify with or support the LGBTQ community of color
Live Music Bands Needed: We are also looking for one or two live music bands to book as entertainment for the evening.

OUTSPOKEN Video Project
We have a very special video project this year that we’re also recruiting artists for. All artists that are invited to perform during OUTSPOKEN are eligible to participate. However, if we are unable to feature you during the live performances, we’re still very much interested in showcasing you during QWOC Week via a special video project we’re embarking on.
Again, if you have any questions, please email outspoken@qwocboston.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
