Tig Notaro, Stephanie Allynne, Joey Soloway, Jen Richards and Chase Joynt are just a few of the boldfaced names scheduled to log on for Outfest House virtual programming.
The series of panels and events, presented by Acura, is scheduled for Jan. 22-24 and features LGBTQIA+ talent from this year’s Sundance Film Festival and beyond. The content will be available to stream for free on Outfest’s virtual platform the OutMuseum. “Embracing this virtual shift for a second year at Sundance increases our ability to bring Outfest’s programming to even more members of our community, not just those who happen to be in Park City,” said Outfest executive director Damien S. Navarro.
The lineup of programming is below.
