Tickets are now on sale for All Out Arts’ 2013 Fresh Fruit Festival, their 11th annual celebration of LGBTQ arts & culture running July 8-21, 2013. With performances at the Wild Project, Nuyorican Poets Café and Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art, this year’s Festival features more works than ever before, with over 40 multidisciplinary pieces and over 100 artists participating. All tickets only $10-$18.

“This year we had a record-setting number of submissions from extremely talented artists,” says Festival Founder & Artistic Director Carol Polcovar. “We just had to expand our offering and are very excited to amplify these traditionally unheard artistic voices. We have a play in Spanish, a look at teen ‘sexting,’ a drag burlesque piece, and many more unique, community-oriented works that are hard to find elsewhere.”

Presented over the course of two weeks, the 2013 FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL showcases the wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community through a diverse array of artistic expression and artists.  This year’s festival includes 26 plays, 9 dance pieces, 3 cabarets, 2 films, a spoken word evening, the return of the hit queer memoir series, an opera, and a new art retrospective about LGBTQ homeless youth.

The Fresh Fruit Festival is presented by All Out Arts to celebrate the LGBTQ community's unique perspective, creativity & diversity, and to build links between the LGBTQ artistic communities, be they local or international.

Established in 1992, All Out Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit devoted to bringing together the diverse artistic, organizational, political and financial resources of the LGBTQ community in order to fight prejudice & intolerance. All Out Arts fulfills its mission by supporting arts organizations within the community through fiscal sponsorship, events, contests, collaborations, networking events for emerging artists, and by sponsoring productions, concerts and exhibitions of visual arts. 

The FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL is presented July 8-21, 2013 at The Wild Project (195 E 3rd St between Avenue A and B), Nuyorican Poets Café (236 E 3rd St between Avenue B and Loisaida Ave) and Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art (26 Wooster St between Grand St and Canal St).
