Release the hounds! The new issue of Outword is out now!658

This edition of Outword is a bit of a mixed bag, we’ll admit, but we’d be remiss without paying our respects on our cover to the honorable former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She once said, “Real and enduring change happens one step at a time.” We believe this change happens with the power to vote. It is our right and privilege to vote on November 3, and we mention it now because you actually have until October 19 to register if you’re not already! Voting this time around is so important and will most assuredly shape the future of the United States for years to come, so please read up on the issues and the candidates and VOTE! More information here, including how to register to vote, how to check your registration, where you can drop off your ballot, and how to track your ballot:

Outword’s Arts and Entertainment Annual Special Issue is Out Now!657

Can you imagine what the past six months would have been like if we didn’t have the modern internet? Having to go to a record store to buy new music, crowd into a Blockbuster Video store to get something to watch, every other evening… Not being able to have video conference meetings with both work and loved ones..? It’s true that we also, probably, wouldn’t know any better, but regardless, sitting at home would be quite boring. Thankfully, that’s not the case, and there are folks, like the ones in charge of the BENT Film Festival, that are doing their best to help keep you stimulated.

Chadwick Boseman / Farm to Fork Annual Issue, is Out Now!656

That sounds funny to say, huh? This, like our many other themed issues, have been on our schedule for this whole year, for sure, but also for prior years as well. All of us here at Outword love the Farm to Fork issue. Not just because we love to eat fresh, delicious food, but there is a real sense of pride at what our city has accomplished over the years, and we have shown the world just how much we can do with the resources available to us.

25 Years Old. Wow! Come Celebrate With Us (safely, of course)!655

About a year ago we put on the Outword company calendar that we would be throwing a big party right about now to celebrate our 25 years of serving the LGBTQ+ community. And it has been truly our pleasure. But, like the last 25 years, going forward will continue to mean more learning, more giving and, hopefully, a lot more loving. Please join us.

Welcome Back, to The Chicks!6554

There are few groups, of any kind, that have taken the brunt of the right-wing spin machine, and survived it, like The Chicks (formerly known as The Dixie Chicks). Their whole world changed because of one, simple First Amendment-authorized comment that was made onstage while performing in Europe. The right pounced! They were eager to give their base something to hate, a common goal to divert attention away from the failing president. Sound familiar? Well this was almost 20 years ago, and while the playing field was comprised of different players, but we were certainly forewarned about things to come. Fortunately, the women of The Chicks emerged from this attack stronger, more aware and more creative than ever. To this day they are a force to be reckoned with politically and musically, and all the while a creative team that isn’t afraid to sing the truth. That is why they grace (beautifully) the cover of our newest issue. Check out what they are up to on page 16.
