Punk Out is is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to connecting and supporting LGBTQ+ musicians and fans through music. We do this by driving conversation into more productive and respectful avenues, provide networking opportunities to LGBTQ+ musicians and their fans, provide resources to aid in the coming-out process, and encourage LGBTQ+ musicians to be more visible. They do this through supporting LGBTQ+ organizations both financially and ideologically, getting our name out into the public sphere, and by creating projects to shine a light on the issues facing LGBTQ+ musicians and their fans.
The "Blog" and "Artist Corner" are spaces for Punk Out team members and musicians to speak independently on any topic that pertains to what we term the "3 I's." Those "3 I's" are: inclusion, inspiration, and identity. The opinions expressed via those platforms are solely of the author and do not reflect the opinions of Punk Out. We believe in the power of conversation and both our Blog and Artist Corner are platforms for conversations.
