Last October, the Lesbian and Gay Community Center of Kansas City's annual Out in Westport celebration moved out of Westport and into Hyde Park (38th Street and Gillham Road). The result: a more picnic-ready, dog-friendly event with a new name, OutFest Kansas City
. OutFest returns to Hyde Park today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free picnic grub will be available (donations accepted). Drag queens, the Mid America Freedom Band and members of the Heartland Men's Chorus will offer entertainment. And local businesses and organizations will offer goods, information and respect. Weather permitting, organizers expect an attendance of 1,000. See lgcckc.org
for more information.
