outLoud Radio is proud to celebrate its tenth anniversary of empowering creative and talented lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and allied youth to share their personal stories through radio. By teaching youth about production, documentation, and storytelling, outLoud’s unique programming gives youth the skills and confidence to decide for themselves how they will be represented and literally saves lives.
This inaugural gala event will feature NPR White House correspondent Ari Shapiro in an on-stage conversation with KQED’s Scott Shafer and several of outLoud’s youth producers, followed by an intimate VIP reception. On this anniversary, outLoud is launching a campaign to expand its programming, increase social media and audience impact, cultivate youth leadership, and build on its track record of successful partnerships with StoryCorps, the Public Radio Exchange, KQED, and many others.

Program begins in the theater at 7pm, and will run a little more than an hour. A VIP reception with Ari Shapiro and outLoud crew follows the event, in the lobby.
