OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
We are so excited to partner with these amazing New York community arts organizations creating new spaces locally and globally for artists to connect and build community! Interested in a potential community partnership with National Queer Theater? We'd love to talk with you! Please contact .
Heritage of Pride is a nonprofit organization that plans and produces New York City’s official LGBTQIA+ Pride events each year to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969 — the beginning of the modern Gay Rights movement. Heritage of Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. They do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community. With the commencement of Stonewall 50 and World Pride events across NYC and with the generous support of NYC Pride, NQT saw a unique opportunity to put the issue of LGBTQIA+ decriminalization on center stage with the production of the first of its kind Criminal Queerness Festival – now to become a mainstay of our program continuum.
Ring of Keys is a national network of queer women+, trans, and gender non-conforming artists working on and offstage in musical theatre. The mission of Ring of Keys is two-fold: a visible, supportive community, as well as a hiring resource for those looking to work with professional artists who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer, femme, trans, non-binary, and the diversity of genders that queerness contains. We strive to kick (ball-change) the closet door open to create a vibrant, diverse musical theatre landscape for the future.
Arts On Site is a multidisciplinary arts organization in NYC that supports artists through performance based programs and community building events by offering affordable studio rental space and hosting monthly events that brings together communities to support the arts. National Queer Theater would like to thank Arts On Site for hosting us at their monthly Performance Party, and for being a rehearsal/performance space partner for our upcoming reading series.
The Stonewall 50 Consortium is an organization that brings together scores of nonprofit institutions and organizations committed to producing programming, exhibitions, and educational materials related to the Stonewall uprising and/or the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement in the context of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising in June 2019.
The mission of the Consortium includes helping participating institutions and organizations share ideas and best practices, facilitate potential collaborations, coordinate outreach efforts, and avoid scheduling conflicts and duplication of programming.
Stonewall Community Foundation
The Stonewall Community Foundation strengthens the LGBTQ Movement by making smart, values-driven investments in dynamic organizations, projects, and leaders. And as a public foundation, they do so in close partnership with donors and the very people working on the front lines of progress. The Stonewall Community Foundation funds over 100 nonprofits a year, in more than 30 issue areas. They also house seven scholarship programs, including the largest in the country created to support LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers. Their grantmaking is complemented by intensive capacity building and training programs that equip local leaders with the tools they need to be effective change agents. These include free consulting, coaching opportunities, and monthly workshops. In all we do—from planned giving to scholarships—our priority is making sure community dollars makes a difference.

Since 1994, Immigration Equality has been proud to advocate for and represent lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ), and HIV-positive immigrants seeking safety, fair treatment, and freedom.
Immigration Equality’s work impacts both the individuals we serve and the immigration system as a whole. In over 80 countries around the world, it is a crime or fundamentally unsafe to be LGBTQ. For far too many people, it is impossible to be out and proud. For more than 20 years, we have been focused on providing free direct legal services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-positive immigrants.
