The OutMuseum is the first LGBTQ+ arts and media virtual museum of its kind - available free to the public. Home to a combination of rotating and permanent exhibits centering themes, identities, and experiences which celebrate and commemorate the queer and trans communities we serve as an organization, the OutMuseum places the telling of our past, present, and future into the hands of those who have lived this past, are surviving its present and will be imagining a thriving future for it. Through short film collections, panels and roundtables, oral histories, and other multimedia within our slate of exhibits, this space offers the ability to foster discussions, increase access to art and information, and, most importantly, speak to histories that are regularly omitted from the record. Because what is history, if not storytelling? And it is all available for free!
Up-and-coming LGBTQIA+ acting talent give a queer makeover to famous, heteronormative film scenes in this showcase.
Brought to you by Emmy-nominated actor Rain Valdez's (Razor Tongue) ActNOW acting classes – which boasts distinguished instructors like Jamie Clayton, Alexandra Billings & Cassandra James and notable alumni like Ian Alexander (Star Trek: Discovery) and Vico Ortiz (VIDA) -- this showcase will feature a diverse lineup of LGBTQIA+ talent performing scenes from popular, if heteronormative, works and giving them a delicious queer spin. Born out of a need to create visibility and bridge the gap between LGBTQIA+ actors & accredited agencies, casting directors & producers, ActNOW both highlights some of the most exciting, up-and-coming LGBTQIA+ acting talent around, and reimagines the cinematic landscape as one that always works toward queer visibility and inclusion.
All scenes directed by Rain Valdez.
