The event is produced by FUNDarte, a non-profit arts organization celebrating its tenth anniversary, dedicated to producing arts events that speak to diverse audiences with a proud history of commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.

This year's OUT in the TROPICS features performances by:

•           Taylor Mac

•           Carmelita Tropicana

•           Well-Strung

The festival also presents the first-ever U.S. performance by Havana's notorious lesbian feminist performance group El Ciervo Encantado, and the U.S. premiere of the Cuban film about homophobia and gay life in Cuba, "Verde Verde."

"FUNDarte is proud to present our fourth annual salute to the very best in contemporary lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender performance," said Artistic Director Ever Chavez. "This year's OUT in the TROPICS features two Obie award-winning artists, and the U.S. premiere of one of Cuba's most daring performance groups. There's no other lgbt performance festival quite like this anywhere else in the country, and we continue to break new ground via this bold celebration that once again showcases an unparalleled collection of queer talent."
