    OUTsider Fest

    C’mon y’all freaks and geeks: Austin’s premier transmedia festival dedicated to bold creativity within the LGBTQ community is back again. Over four days, creators like Good Pollution, Fargo Nissim Tbakhi, Ajani Brannum, Xandra Ibarra, and many more will bake your noodle with performances pacing past all known artistic outposts. Special presentations pop up throughout the fest run, but ongoing all four days will be DARKROOM, a blindfold-required sonic experience, and Lezbian Popcorn Cart, a celebration of savory sapphic her/hirstory. Highly recommended: the Legacy Awards boosting Austin spacemakers Priscilla Hale, Chale Nafus, Sandra Martinez, and Susan Post at Cheer Up Charlies on Friday, Feb. 16. – James Scott

    Red Party

    The first known red was red ochre, found in cave paintings a million zillion years ago – give or take. From the beginning, this color’s symbolized life, fire, and love. Local LGBTQ stagecrafters Austin Rainbow Theatre utilize that lineage in their Red Campaign, which raises funds to continue their commitment to “amplifying LGBTQ+ voices in Austin and Central Texas” via ART’s theatrical programming. The campaign wraps this week with a massive finale featuring performances, testimonials, a silent auction featuring exclusive experiences and items, and special VIP tickets to a rooftop regalia that goes after hours. – James Scott
