Hosted by BAC co-founder, Project OutLoud Coordinator, and multimedia artist Jaleel Campbell, the event is a joyous celebration of Black talent. It will honor the contributions of artists who have shaped the dynamic arts and cultural landscape, including Dominique’s Dance Creations, KJ & Lolo, and The WiZdom G.O.A.T, among others. Featured pop-up mini-market businesses include Brandan Jones, ByIIW, BySuli Designs, CraftsbyNicole, Dezi Dezignz, Eastcoast Bandits, Serenity and Me, SeaKissed Blends, and The Stone and Bamboo.

The celebration will also feature A tribute to Walter Robinson, the model and inspiration behind Campbell’s new In Secrecy Series. The event will feature the debut of a new illustration in his honor. As we celebrate Black Joy as an alternative form of resistance, this event centers on solidarity and unity within our community.

The collaboration between BAC and Project OutLoud emphasizes the intersecting struggles faced by Black and LGBTQ+ communities. It acknowledges the shared experience of discrimination and marginalization within these groups. By uniting in solidarity and celebration, we affirm the importance of collective action and acknowledge the common challenges and victories experienced by individuals in both communities. This sentiment resonates with Bayard Rustin’s powerful words: “You have to join every other movement for people’s freedom.” His call to action, advocating for “social dislocation and creative trouble,” inspires us to respond with radical joy as a solution and vehicle of resistance during this month and beyond! 


Project OutLoud addresses the needs of the LGBTQ+ community in Central New York. Recognizing the limited number of supportive spaces and opportunities available, this initiative aims to create safe spaces, eliminate barriers to accessing resources, and raise awareness for LGBTQ+ individuals of all ages. Through workshops, information sessions, and social events, this project seeks to foster belonging, increase access to resources, and provide opportunities for connection and growth within the LGBTQ+ community. This project represents a vital step toward building safety, belonging, and inclusion for the Queer community while increasing access to vital resources and opportunities.

The Black Artist Collective is a Syracuse-based 501c3 organization that endeavors to play an essential role in the lives of emerging and established Black and Brown artists by cultivating networks and amplifying the talents of its richly diverse membership. 

Sponsors – This event is made possible in part through the generous support of the Central New York Community Foundation through Project OutLoud.
