Queeriosity Performance Showcase
San Francisco LGBT Community Center
1800 Market Street @ Octavia
Queeriosity Performance Showcase is an annual spoken word and performance event dedicated to young people who are reshaping the conversations about sexuality, identity, and community.
Youth Speaks first presented Queeriosity in 1999, the brainchild of two young members of the organization. As part of our ongoing campaign to celebrate young people in the Bay Area, and to give a space for those who are marginalized to speak, Queeriosity is a place for a diverse population of queer youth and their allies to come together and declare themselves present and unafraid. Queeriosity is a place for queer and questioning youth to simply be, and have their emerging artistic and activist voices celebrated. In partnership with the National Queer Arts Festival, Queeriosity is an annual spoken word and performing arts showcase for LGBTQQ youth, highlighting the voices of a diverse San Francisco Bay Area. It is for all of us that don’t and won’t fit the cookie cutter rubrics of American love and sexuality. If you’ve ever felt your identity overcrowding the boxes, Queeriosity is for you.
