Activities & Events / Courses

Outhouse recognises the importance of Arts and Cultural aspects within the LGBT Community, they are a form of entertainment, a personal expression, an opportunity to engage and often a great way to meet new friends and connect with the community.

Outhouse regularly hosts Dublin based Arts Festivals such as International Gay Theatre Festival, Five Lamps Arts Festival and most recently Ireland largest multi-disciplinary Arts Festival Absolut Fringe. Recent events also include:

Come Rhyme With Me is an anything goes spoken word event, featuring slam, hip-hop, stories, rhymes, poetry, word games, anecdotes, speeches and sometimes impromptu song. Hosted by Vickey Curtis and Una Mullally with guests it raises much needed funds for Outhouse.

Outhouse Documentary Film Club ‘What’s The Story’ is a documentary film Club which shows LGBT themed documentaries from all over the Word. After the film there is a talk around the themes in the films.

Record Store Gay is an Annual Celebration of Diversity and Music at Outhouse. Dublin based musicians, DJ’s and artists get together and play gigs throughout the day at Outhouse, with a Pop Up music shop in the Café it is a hugely popular event which raises funds for Outhouse.
