BlackOUT is a group of young queer, Black artists and activists creating original performance pieces. Performers are Kaamila Mohamed, Lindsey Anderson, Jessy Boursiquot, Viquan Smith, Alyssandra Taylor, Eziah Blake, and Stephanie Sanchez.
Jen on drums, Erika on bass, Katie on guitar, Lizzy on synth, and Madeleine on vocals: together they push the boundaries of alternative rock to the edges, with intertwining ribbons of electronic, punk, and garage.
Unstraight's meaning, as a name, is two-fold; one is blatantly queer and the other is that Unstraight does not walk the common path. Walk with them--they already love you for it. Unstraight is all women, all queer, and all you ever wanted.
