Since 2015, Tennessee has enacted more anti-LGBTQIA+ laws than any other state in the country. The latest of these are Senate Bill 3 and House Bill 9 — two anti-LGBTQIA+ bills that ban all performances deemed male or female impersonation otherwise known as "drag" from taking place on any public property in the state, as well as in any location where people under 18 could be present.

The Looking Out Foundation

The Looking Out Foundation (LOF) amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice. From neighborhood to nation, we help fund causes and organizations that often go unnoticed. Founded in 2008 by multiple Grammy winning artists Brandi Carlile, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, we band together with fans, non-profits and female LGBTQ+ owned businesses to translate voices of song to voices of action. We are nimble to the ever-changing needs of the human race, and adapt to support the diverse demographic we serve. Every campaign we launch is backed by our passionate donors and fans, and $2 from every concert ticket sold goes directly toward our efforts. Since its inception, LOF has donated over $4 million to support social justice and humanitarian causes across the US and globally, providing vital funding for disaster relief aid, protection for children and families in war torn countries, food insecurity programs, racial justice, incarceration prevention, and self-defense workshops for marginalized communities. With an average donation of $25 per campaign, our community of supporters exemplifies the global impact of grassroots level activism and fundraising. Together, we are making Music Mean More.
