The William Way LGBT Community Center presents OutBeat: America's First Queer Jazz Festival. The four-day festival will highlight intersections between sexual orientation, gender identity, and jazz history and culture.

Supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, the OutBeat Festival continues with this free event at the Arts Bank: "From Strayhorn to Cecil: Jazz Innovation in America" featuring David Hajdu, John Szwed, and 2010 Pew Fellow Orrin Evans in conversation with Jazztimes' John Murph.
