Boilers OUT Loud!

"Stories can cross the barriers of time, past, present, and future, and allow us to experience the similarities between ourselves and through others, real and imagined." - Andrew Stanton

About Boilers OUT Loud!

Boilers OUT Loud! is a collection of poignant, funny, interesting, exciting, serious, creative and sometimes embarrassing but always REAL stories authored and performed by LGBTQIA+ Purdue students, faculty and staff.

Through storytelling, performers shed light on the process of coming out and sharing their identities with the world. Each unique story explores the diverse experiences and perspectives of LGBTQ people and highlights the ability of the spoken word to educate and empower.

Virtual Performance in Fall 2020

In response to the Protect Purdue Plan, the Fall 2020 production of Boilers OUT Loud! will be filmed in advance and premiere online in late October or early November.
