About OUTrageous!

Since 1992, the Santa Barbara Lesbian & Gay Film Festival has provided a spectrum of films and videos for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. Our desire to represent the diversity of our community in film and video has resulted in a new name: OUTrageous: The Santa Barbara Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Film Festival.

Mission

OUTrageous provides a diverse selection of films and videos that entertain, challenge, and educate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. OUTrageous also provides film and video makers with opportunities to screen their work that might not otherwise be seen locally.

History

OUTrageous was established in 1991 by a group of volunteers, and continues to be operated almost entirely by volunteers under the auspices of the Pacific Pride Foundation.

OUTrageous is a community-wide event. We screen programs we hope will be of interest to people of any LGBT-friendly identity or orientation. Join us each autumn (a beautiful time of year in Santa Barbara) for great cinema, special events, and OUTrageous fun!
