Voices Rising is an ongoing series of performances by LGBTQ performers of color. Founded in 2007 by artist and activist Storme Webber, Voices Rising has emerged as the leading showcase for queer performers of color. Past shows have featured performances by standout artists such as Nedra Johnson, D'LO, Mami Watu & Avery R. Young, okonomode aka SoulChilde, Christa Bell, Dakota Camacho and many, many more. Performances are held quarterly at Washington Hall's historic Ballroom. Funding for the project is sustained through ticket sales, event sponsorships, grants and donations.
