By serving our elders, youth, and working professionals, NQT creates a more just future through radical and evocative theater experiences and free community classes.
The Criminal Queerness Festival (CQF) is an annual international theater festival created in partnership with NYC Pride and the Stonewall Community Foundation. The festival presents exciting new plays by LGBTQ artists from countries that criminalize queer and trans people. Presenting the work of international queer artists alongside activist talks and workshops, CQF aims to uplift the careers of these artists and raise awareness about criminalization around the world.
The Criminal Queerness Festival provides a stage for artists facing censorship, shining a light on critical stories from across the globe. In order to build a truly global queer community, these writers are inspiring activism and shaping our culture towards the equitable treatment of LGBTQ people in every nation.
The Criminal Queerness Festival was co-founded in 2018.
