Our 2015 Performer Lineup

BlackOUT 
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.

Unstraight
Unstraight formed through a blaze of social media and dyke marches and friends of friends. Their music, simultaneously introspective and ringing with clarity, beckons you to connect and wills you to ponder the tenuous nature of relationships and all that you want from life.  Unstraight coaxes the wishes out of your imagination and channels them into instruments and amplifiers, pouring sound into your ears until you’re moving your body not knowing why.

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.

Carissa Johnson and the Electric Party Convention:
Carissa Johnson and the Electric Party Convention have been electrifying Boston and surrounding cities since their debut show at City Hall Plaza. With Tanya Dmuchowski of Boston's own Flight of Fire on guitar, New England's Best Bar Comic winner Alan "Buttercup" Richardson on the drums, and bassist Carissa Johnson on the mic, the three make a wonderful concoction of spontaneity and upbeat - good ol' rock n roll that's hard to find nowadays. They don't mess around and they're bound to show you a good time.

Bobbi Taylor (speaker)
Bobbi Taylor is a father, spouse, and housewife. As vice chair of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, she works to end discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. She is passionate about intimacy and believes that everyone should have the freedom and resources to openly explore and express their identity. Only then can we truly know ourselves and each other and form healthy communities that are rich in diversity and authenticity. Let’s welcome Bobbi to the stage!

Alicia Vida Ortiz (emcee)
Alicia Vida Ortiz is a Queer Latina with a sociology degree and career background as a community organizer. She's led demonstrations and campaigns for labor unions, LGBTQ equality, reproductive rights, immigration reform, and racial justice.
