For the theme of the 2020 National Queer Arts Festival, we ask artists to address Transformation in all its forms. Maya Angelou wrote, “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” What does it mean to transform? How do our queer lives evolve and open the way to the transformation our experiences conjure? Why is transformation necessary and how do we as a queer community embrace the transition? What unexpected growth do our hearts open to when we surrender to a vision of change, love, affirmation and forgiveness?
