It is our mission to create a well rounded presentation of works that reflect the many diverse individuals that embody the LGBT community.

It is our belief that LGBT theater has been stigmatized in the mainstream culture, leaving many of our stories untold, unrepresented, and lacking a strong voice in our modern times. Therefore, we commit to explore LGBT subjects and materials that provoke discussion of difficult questions. To find works that show all facets of LGBT culture, including, but not limited to playwriting, performance, subject matter and technical theater representation.

We extend our commitment by pledging to encourage not only LGBT performers, but technicians and others working in the divergent aspects of theatrical production. To further our commitment, we will be incorporating philanthropic causes from the LGBT community on our agenda.

Our Stories. Our Lives. Our Time.
