Queeriosity

6.14queriostiyBnr

Queeriosity is a literary arts and performance event that creates a safe space for LBGTQ youth to speak their truths without having to conform to the ideals of others, or pander to limited mainstream understanding of “Queerness.”  Queeriosity was created to give youth a place to simply be, speak from the places they are here and now, and have their emerging artistic and activist voices celebrated and validated.  Since it’s inception, Queeriosity has grown in every way shape and form.  It has become a vehicle for a powerful, empowered, evolving cohort of Queer youth to push through the margins and articulate their experiences as they live them.

Queeriosity features 15 – 20 young performers—queer and queer allies—80% of whom are of color, and presents outstanding multi-genre performances in spoken word, song, dance, visual art and theater.
