ABOUT US

OUR STORY

NATIONAL QUEER THEATER IS A 501(c)(3) NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION BASED IN NYC
MISSION

National Queer Theater is an innovative theater collective dedicated to celebrating the brilliance of generations of LGBTQ artists and providing a home for unheard storytellers and activists. By serving our elders, youth, and working professionals, NQT creates a more just future through radical and evocative theater experiences and free community classes.

VISION

Believing in the power of theater to effect sweeping social change, National Queer Theater cultivates a more just, joyous, and empowered intersectional queer community that is celebrated in all corners of society. Through our art and free community programs we create and organize together, working towards a more equitable vision of a world bursting with pride.

VALUES
  • Belonging: We believe that everyone deserves to create and enjoy theater, to see their stories on stage and to be seen in their full complexity. 

  • Fearlessness: We believe that theater, like social change, must be made courageously without reservation. 

  • Pride: We believe that everyone in the LGBTQ community deserves to feel proud of their identity and that an abundance of queer stories instills a sense of pride in audience and creators alike. 

PROCESS

By building coalitions between artists and activists, National Queer Theater develops its artistic and education programs through collective decision making and service-driven partnerships in the pursuit of collective liberation.
