DC Queer Theatre Festival

Founded in 2012, the DC Queer Theatre Festival is dedicated to unleashing and celebrating the underrepresented voices and diversity of our artists, audiences, and area. By featuring new plays with themes relevant to the DC area and local artists with roots in the community, the DC Queer Theatre Festival combines quality theatre with activism and charity. The 2012 and 2013 DC Queer Theatre Festivals partnered with The DC Center for the LGBT Community, raising money for and awareness of the essential services The DC Center provides to the LGBTQ communities in Washington, DC.
