Description

This event is meeting virtually during shelter-in-place, as part of our Coronavirus response.

Please register in advance to receive phone and video conference access information.


Join Our Family Coalition as we celebrate our families and community while listening to a 100% family-friendly live concert with Crys Matthews & Heather Mae. Matthews & Mae incorporate social justice topics in their music with topics ranging from women's equality, racial justice, LGBTQ+ liberation & love songs, and mental health.

The one hour concert will be followed by a 30 min Q&A with the artists and include trivia with a chance to win gift cards!

 

Award-winning singer-songwriters Heather Mae and Crys Matthews are joining forces once again to spread their message of social-justice, hope and love from coast to coast as The Singing OUT Tour, a celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride. Mae, whose evocative vocals and rhythmic piano style call to mind artists like Stevie Nicks and Sara Bareilles, creates intoxicating and unforgettable music inspired by her own personal experiences as a queer, plus-size woman living with Bipolar Disorder. Matthews, a powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she, a black, lesbian, butch-identified woman, lightheartedly calls "the poster-child for intersectionality," has been called "the Woody Guthrie of our generation."
