The theme for this year’s National Queer Arts Festival is Connections. As LGBTQ+ people, we make connections across many so-called borders of ethnicity, gender, ability, and economic status as well as physical borders across cities, states and countries to assemble a family, to create art, to provoke commentary, to weave social justice issues into our practices, to explore spirituality and to have a hella good time.
Individually, Queers are constantly forging new ways to connect within and outside of our perceived communities. We asked artists to explore the connections we make internally, individually, collectively and in community and to investigate the sinews that hold them together and the forces that break them apart.
When the Festival kicks off on May 29, 2015 with QUEER REBELS FEST, you will have 40 + opportunities to see the amazing artistic responses to that theme!
See you at the Festival!
Pamela Peniston, Artistic Director
