About Queeriosity

Youth Speaks first presented Queeriosity in 1999, the brainchild of two young members of the organization. This LGBTQIA+ centered performance, features young queer poets in their own voice and terms, exploring personal and historical narratives that (re)frame perceptions of language, sexuality & gender. This is intended to be a space where your authentic self is not only welcomed- it’s celebrated.

Check out our free writing and performance workshop “Queer is Lit” every Thursday in Oakland for LGBTQIA+ youth.
