Since 1998, QCC has curated and produced 24 National Queer Arts Festivals (NQAF) that have featured more than 2,300 LGBTQ+ artists in over 920 different arts and cultural events. The festival has become a bay area cultural institution bringing to life hundreds of performances, visual arts exhibitions, literary readings and film screenings.
Our Creating Queer Community (CQC) program has commissioned over 400 LGBTQ+ artists to create, produce, commission, promote, and document original works examining LGBTQ+ social justice and civil rights issues that debut at the National Queer Arts Festival.
Join us for QCC’s 25th Anniversary, 2022 National Queer Arts Festival beginning June 9th to June 23rd, 2022 with a lineup of amazing events and workshops across the Bay in-person and virtually worldwide.
This year’s theme, Our Destiny… honors our past, the present, and all the abundant possibilities for our community in the future. The National Queer Arts Festival centers Queer, Trans, Gender Nonconforming, Intersex, Two-spirit, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTI2SBIPOC artists) and honors their artistry, experiences, and lives.
