Who We Are

The Queer Lounge is a project of Out in Television & Film.

Out in Television & Film (OTF) is the national, professional organization that promotes the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender professionals in the film and television industries; helps LBGT professionals achieve their highest professional goals; and fosters corporate cultures that provide equal opportunities and benefits for "out" professionals.  Information about our organization is at www.outintvandfilm.org

OTF has over 2,500 members located predominantly in Los Angeles and New York City, though members are also located throughout the United States and Canada.

Besides distributing a weekly email newsletter which details job openings and events in the film and television industry, OTF also sponsors and produces professional panels, seminars and networking special events--sometimes with other organizations--offering OTF members the opportunity to attend industry-related events for free or at a discounted admission cost. Past events have included advance screenings of Miramax, Fox and Paramount Films; OUTFEST screenings; OTF Screenwriters Pitch Festival and Pitching Seminar, sponsorship of In The Life's Annual NY Party & Screening of The Academy Awards, collaboration mixers with Comedy Central and our own LA Academy Awards party sponsored by The Advocate.
