Can you feel that pull? The search for your own sound, the longing for the collection of heartbeats that you will someday call family, the feeling when all the voices that ring through your days transform into a symphony -- we're all dreamers making newer, better, queerer homes. Join 2nd Story in celebrating Pride month as we share stories of unexpected beginnings and living boldly in the world we've dared to create.  This event is 21+.

A Joyful Noise: Stories of Living Out Loud is presented as part of 2nd Story's "Point of View" programming. Given the nature of 2nd Story's work and the diversity of artists we collaborate with, we have the unique opportunity to build community among and share the stories of marginalized groups by building teams for our shows that share a particular point of view. It is our honor to be a conduit for these collaborations. A Joyful Noise: Stories of Living Out Loud is led, produced, and performed by artists that identify as Queer Women.
