About

Why have a queer country music festival? Because sometimes you love a culture that doesn’t love you back. And when everyone came to the first Opry in April of 2011 in all their country finery, we knew we weren’t alone. We do it because we love the music and want to build a community to support queer country musicians. We do it because everybody needs a honky tonk angel to hold them tight. We do it because we believe in country music for all cowpeople.

The annual Opry is our big extravaganza, and we also put on the Queer Country Monthly at the Branded Saloon.

Brought to you by  Karen & the Sorrows and Riot Grrrl Ink, the largest queer record label in the world. And with the help of the kind folks at Brooklyn Country.
