QueerX, brought to you by Lexus, is Revry's annual event–celebrating the intersectionality of LGBTQ+ music, film, politics, and culture. The festival–which has been touted as the queer SXSW (Billboard, Flaunt Magazine)–is going into its 5th year and past honorees, performers, and presenters have included Tyler Oakley, Ari Fitz, Gigi Gorgeous, Amber's Closet, Hannah Hart, Miles Jai, Ingrid Nilsen, Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons), Miles McKenna, Tegan and Sara, Brooke Candy, and Sue Bird (3X WNBA Champion).
In lieu of a traditional festival, this year's event will feature a brand new award show called QueerX Live! which the network will premiere on its live TV channels and at an in-person event in Los Angeles called QueerX @ the Drive-In–both premiering on National Coming Out Day (Sunday, October 11, 2020). The drive-in event will also feature a COVID-safe stage featuring speakers, performers, and live activations.
The theme this year is "Rise Up" and–being 3 weeks before the National election–will be focused on pushing the political envelope, encouraging our participants to speak their mind, and galvanizing people to vote! We want to use this opportunity to remind our community of the importance of this election to LGBTQ+ rights and equality!
