OUT LOUD was just selected by the audience of the 2020 Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival as the recipient of this year’s Audience Choice Award!  It’s our first award, and we’re grateful to all the film fans who tuned in virtually and voted for us.  Cheers!


Last night we were deeply honored to have OUT LOUD acknowledged in a proclamation by the City of West Hollywood.  The proclamation was presented to us by Mayor Lindsay Horvath during a virtual (of course) City Council Meeting.  Incorporated in 1984, the city of WeHo (as we fondly call it) has its roots in the LGBT community and is a trailblazer in the defense of LGBT rights –and many other critical social movements.   Today, it’s one of the most influential small cities in the nation, with an impact on the national progressive public policy agenda.  Thank you to Mayor Horvath and all the council members for this vote of confidence!


We are thrilled to get two great reviews from the Northern California press in conjunction with OUT LOUD screening at this year’s SF Docfest.

The Mercury News had this to say:  “Director Gail Willumsen tagged along with the groundbreaking Trans Chorus of Los Angeles for about a year, capturing everything from tryouts to rehearsals to the transgender choir’s 2016 debut performance.  It was time well spent.  “Loud” wraps up into the lives of these evolving singers and culminates with the performance of their first concert, guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.”

The Bay Area Reporter’s coverage included this:  “The best parts of Out Loud are the personal stories such as recovering from reconstruction surgery, overcoming discrimination at work, or dealing with abuse at home or in their personal lives.  Some of the music was composed by trans woman member Jordan Balagot and one of the documentary highlights is TCLA singing her original composition “Genderfreak.” It all leads to an inspiring, thrilling conclusion, not to be missed.”
