Picks: 8th Annual OutMusic Awards

[Music] Sunday, Dec. 16

So many members of the gay community are entertainers, and yet they are often the most invisible members of the entertainment community, closeted or out. The LGBT Academy of Recording Arts established the OutMusic Awards to highlight and honor those underrepresented artists, as well as showcase their talents with short, live performances. In addition, lifetime achievement awards will be bestowed onto several community veterans, including Joey Arias, the original MC for Zumanity. Look for the afterparty at the nearby Sin City Theater, as well as Friday and Saturday OutMusic bashes at Share Nightclub. 8 p.m.; PH Live at Planet Hollywood, 3667 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 785-5555, $31-$81 ($100 for three-day pass).
