Q: What are the goals of Queer Camp outLoud?

A: outLoud Radio Queer Camp has three main goals: raise money for our youth radio programs; build community; produce some audio stories!

Q: How much can I learn in one weekend starting from zero?

A: Over the weekend you will learn and practice using field recording equipment, interviewing, audio editing and story design. No previous experience necessary.

Q: I already have media production skills. Is this camp for me?

A: Sure! You can practice your interviewing, editing and storytelling. AND, you get to spend the weekend developing these skills in queer community!

Q:  If my friends sign up too, can we stick together at Camp?

A: We will be doing projects in groups of 2-4. Groups will either be doing a vox pop (“person on the street”) piece or interviewing each other. If you and 1-3 friends want to make a vox pop, or if one of you wants to interview the other(s), you’ve got yourself a group and are welcome to stay together during camp!

Q:  I have an important and unavoidable commitment during Camp - is it okay to miss part of a day?

A: Our time is short! We ask you to be there for the entire camp. Please talk to us if you have any concerns

Q:  Do you offer financial aid for Queer Camp outLoud participants?
