National Queer Arts Festival, 2020


Theme Transformation

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?

We will present art that offers visibility to transformational queer stories of courage, inspiration, love, perseverance, hope, disappointment, creativity, expansion, difference and success.


Shows will launch on May 1, 2020. Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Instagram or Facebook for updated announcements!
