OutCT is a 501c3 non-profit organization established in 2013 by a diverse group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queers and their allies in Southeastern Connecticut to plan a New London Pride Festival. In addition to a pride festival, OutCT has hosted art exhibits, film series, educational forums, drag shows, and a youth program. OutCT is committed to creating a network of people, programs and experiences that celebrate our growing understanding of sexual and gender identities in Southeastern Connecticut.
 
By dedicating a show to queer artists, we have the opportunity to highlight the diverse lives of people in the LGBTQ+ community and all their intersecting identities The works are aspirational, sometimes dark, celebratory, and often express real life. This group show is comprised of many different mediums: paintings, graffiti, much more. Artists represented include Candace Marsh John, JackStar Rivera, Fred Verillo and Amy Hannum.
 
Groton - New London Airport's terminal is open daily from 7 am to 6 pm for public viewing of the exhibit. Parking is easily accessible and free.
