Kim Petras Joins OUTLOUD Music Festival Lineup

Kim Petras, who has dominated Billboard charts with hit singles since making her debut in 2011 and is dubbed by ABC News as “Pop’s Newest Princess” will perform at OUTLOUD Music Festival as part of 2019 lineup on Saturday, September 14th. The one-day, music-centric event with outloud entertainment will feature Petras, alongside YouTube sensation Greyson Chance, upcoming pop star Gia Woods, and more on two stages.

 

“Our goal was to create a fun, energetic, and diverse line up that celebrates equality” states Jack Davis, the event’s organizer with Good Neighbor Festivals.  “We love creating uplifting experiences that encourage everyone to be authentic and themselves.” 

Kim Petras' undeniable voice and imaginative artistry have skyrocketed her to international recognition as one of music’s most promising talents. Her 12-track project Clarity introduced a more personal, grounded sound and kicked off with “Broken,” which catapulted into theTop 10 of the iTunes Pop Chart and started Kim’s hot-streak of dominating the Spotify’s “New Music Friday” and Apple Music’s “Best of The Week” playlists for nine consecutive weeks.

Traveling the world on her first-ever, sold-out headline tour and garnering over 150 million streams with hits such as “I Don’t Want It At All” and “Heart To Break,” Kim has earned major media praise as a one to watch and has collaborated with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes, SOPHIE, Lil Aaron, and more.

Greyson Chance, with his April 2010 performance of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at a sixth-grade music festival, went viral on YouTube, gaining widespread attention and over 64 million views as of December 2017. His appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show shortly afterward propelled his rise. Two of his original compositions, "Stars" and "Broken Hearts", gained over six and eight million views respectively on his YouTube channel.

His debut album, Hold On 'til the Night, was released on August 2, 2011 and his second EP, Somewhere Over My Head, on May 13, 2016. On March 15, 2019, Chance released his second full-length album, Portraits, though Chance views it as his debut because he was more involved in the songwriting process and felt "truly honest and vulnerable" in his work for the first time. The lead single, "Shut Up", was released on February 8, 2019, followed by "Timekeeper" on March 7.

Gia Woods breaks every rule. The 21-year-old queer Persian songstress can provoke one moment and comfort the next. Casting a striking and exotic presence, her undeniable sex appeal translates beyond music and into each performance and visual, while thoughtful song writing and impressive instrumentation threads the vision together. En-amoring the LGBTQ community out of the gate during 2015, the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist now stands primed to become breakthrough talent in 2019. Her 2019 debut EP for Disruptor Records introduces a singular style representative of her enigmatic experience and bold persona.

Along with the festival headliners, the event features Katie Pruitt, TAELA, 2’Live Bre, John Cyrus, Gifted Queen, Kenna Ria Marie, Abigail Douglas, and local drag including Annita Coxx, Tammy Whynot, Hotmess Housewives, and Heather Sapphire.  

The festival will also feature food trucks, vendors, DJ’s, and many outloud surprises. General Admission tickets and Greyson Chance and Kim Petras  meet and greet tickets are available at outloudmusicfestival.com.

Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Aging Adults

Queer elders have made a big impact on the world. Queer folks over the age of 65 were around during the Stonewall Movement in the 1960s and may have even campaigned to improve the rights and freedoms of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

But, as queer elders enter later life, they may need to find new ways to protect and preserve their mental health.
