CRIMINAL QUEERNESS FESTIVAL
This pride, you are invited to witness new plays from three East African LGBTQIA+ writers fighting criminalization through their art.
The 4th Annual Criminal Queerness Festival returned to Lincoln Center in the David Rubenstein Atrium for Pride 2022.
We partner with community-based nonprofit organizations serving marginalized LGBTQ communities.
Our programs serve people living with HIV and empower youth, elders, activists, and educators through the transformative power of theater.
We invest supporting in early-career LGBTQ playwrights through readings, workshops, and more.
We are passionate about promoting the creation of new plays by writers of marginalized backgrounds to diversify the existing American theatrical landscape.
National Queer Theater acknowledges that our programs are on the ancestral land of the Lenape and Canarsie people. We pay respect to their ancestors and descendants, and especially celebrate our queer and Two Spirit indigenous communities.
EQUITY, DIVERSITY, & INCLUSION
At National Queer Theater, our vision is that we can help cultivate a more just, joyous, and empowered queer community that is celebrated in all corners of society. We are enthusiastic to share our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commitments with you, and welcome any feedback.
National Queer Theater works tirelessly to support queer communities through social justice-based performing arts programming, but we cannot operate without the kindness of people like you.
