Outfest’s free LGBTQ+ television fan festival, The Outfronts, is returning for its third year!

Outfest is a Los Angeles-based non-profit that uplifts global Queer and Trans creators in the entertainment industry by curating the exhibition and preservation of their stories while also providing career support.

The Outfronts is a four-day festival that connects fans with all things LGBTQ+ on the web and television. The four-day event will take place virtually from June 2-5 and will feature panel discussions with the creatives behind some of the year’s hottest LGBTQ+ series including Taika Waititi, Trace Lysette, Isis King, and many more!

The festival aims to highlight the diverse representation of LGBTQ+ characters on screen, spanning across genres and styles as Queer and Trans representation continues to increase across television and cinema.

“With Outfronts now in our third year, we are committed to continuing to build platforms and spaces where we can raise awareness of the importance of having LGBTQ+ stories and characters represented on television, especially when it seems that the industry is lagging behind,” said Damien Navarro, Executive Director of Outfest.

All panel discussions will be free of charge to view online and via Outfest’s Outfest+ platform. To RSVP to the free panels visit

Outfest plays an integral role in the championing of LGBTQ+ visibility across screens, having showcased thousands of global films and preserving more than 40,000 LGBTQ+ films/videos and empowering creatives through programs such as The Outfest Screenwriting Lab and The Outfest UCLA Legacy Project.

If you are a Queer and/or Trans creator in the entertainment industry or just an overall fan of LGBTQ+ storytelling on screen, then the Outfronts festival is definitely the event for you!
