Out Loud!: A collection of queer music and voices

IDDB Albumv2Out Loud! is a collection of music, sounds and voices gathered for the second issue of I Don’t Do Boxes magazine. Through an open call for submissions our editorial team invited queer-identifying musicians and youth to submit original recordings to compliment stories and artworks featured in this latest issue.
