The fourth annual Rhinestone Steel Festival will take place upstairs at Spirit Hall.  

Founded in 2012, Rhinestone Steel strives to support and expand Pittsburgh’s queer music and arts scene. They organize an annual music festival as well as host events throughout the year.

In an environment where queer voices are seldom heard in mainstream music and arts spaces, Rhinestone Steel is more than just a music festival; it is a celebratory political action creating visibility and space for queer expression.

The organization works towards creating a more inclusive, queer, artistic space that people can participate, feel accepted and become motivated.
