Since its debut in 2007, Voices Rising has showcased the best queer performers of color. Brilliant feature performers like Evelyn Harris, Edwina Lee Tyler have hit the stage and set it on fire. Our lineup always pairs the night's feature with Seattle's hottest emerging stars to kickoff the showcase. Artist and activist Storme Webber founded Voices Rising to create a space where we can celebrate our best and brightest artists and the best parts of ourselves. Past shows have featured performances by standout artists such as Nedra Johnson, D'LO, Mami Watu & Avery R. Young, Christa Bell, Dakota Camacho and many, many more.
