Retell. Relive. Relate. OUTspoken!, Chicago's monthly evening of LGBTQ Storytelling celebrates its two-year anniversary on Tuesday, August 2. Our August evening of storytelling and celebration will include special moments and surprises for the always-supportive, engaged audience.

OUTspoken!'s second year included going on the road with a feature spot in Lifeline Theater's FILLET OF SOLO, a special joint event with Chicago Public Libraries to present at Sulzer Library as part of Pride Month, and being a featured workshop at CREATING CHANGE 2016 in Chicago.

OUTspoken! is curated by David Fink ( Co-founder of Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan ) and emceed by Kim L. Hunt ( Executive Director of Pride Action Tank ) and Art Johnston ( Co-founder of Equality Illinois ). August storytellers scheduled to appear are Hadeis Safi, Brad Lippitz, Erin Marshall, M Shelly Conner, Ella Nelson and monthly co-host Art Johnston.

OUTspoken! is presented at Sidetrack, 3349 North Halsted in Chicago. Storytellers identify as LBGTQ ( Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgendered, or Queer ) but audiences of all walks of life have found the nights of storytelling enlightening, inspiring and entertaining. And while all stories do not have sexuality or gender identity as their focus, all stories are told from the perspective of LGBTQ persons. OUTspoken occurs on the first Tuesday of every month from 6-9 p.m. Doors open at 6 with the stories beginning at 7:00. There is no charge for this event. Storytellers vary month to month, but all identify as LGBTQ.

Opened in 1982, and now a Chicago institution, Sidetrack is a bar, so everyone must be at least 21 years of age to enter.
