(Roxbury, MA) OUT’hood FEST is a festival designed to by and for the voices and works of local LGBTQ POC.

Through this program, youth work together to write a play based on personal experience, the experience of their peers, and LGBT youth issues, and then tour this play to schools, community organizations and state agencies throughout Massachusetts.
