About National Queer Theater:
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.

Through our art and free community programs, we create and organize together, working towards a more equitable vision of a world bursting with pride.
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.
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. Learn more at www.nationalqueertheater.org.
