The William Way LGBT Community Center is a non-profit organization serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations of Philadelphia and its nearby communities. William Way's holdings include a large archive of local and regional LGBT documents and artifacts, and the center offers programs in peer counseling, senior services, education, and arts and culture. With Center support, William Way will present the first-ever queer jazz festival in the United States: OutBeat will take place over three days in September 2014, addressing intersections amongst sexual orientation, gender identity, and jazz music. The festival will culminate in a daylong concert at Penn's Landing's Festival Pier, featuring over a dozen celebrated LGBTQ jazz artists, as well as local and emerging queer jazz musicians.
