What is Opera OUT Loud?

Opera OUT Loud explores operatic works that highlight LGBTQ themes and issues.

We also celebrate contributions to opera made by LGBTQ individuals and affirming companies.

Currently, the active arm of Opera OUT Loud is a libretto read program that connects LGBTQ youth audiences to opera.

“Projects like Opera OUT Loud matter because queer people exist.”

– J. Kanella Markis, youth from Compass GLCC (Lake Worth, Florida) –
