The OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival is celebrating its 20th annual anniversary with an edition featuring over 80 films. The festival, one of the largest of its kind in the world, is opening on April 20th at the Silver Spot Theater in Downtown, and it will continue for 10 more days. For those who prefer to watch films from the comfort of their own home, the festival is also offering an at-home option. The Outshine at Home will begin on April 31st and will feature many of the films available in the theater. This year’s festival is a great opportunity to celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and support filmmakers who are telling our stories on the big screen. In a world where LGBTQ+ news can often be overshadowed by negativity and hate, it’s important to have events like the Outshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival that showcase our community’s triumphs and struggles. So whether you choose to watch the films in the theater or at home, let’s show our support for the festival and the LGBTQ+ community as a whole.
