Queeriosity is a place for queer and questioning youth to simply be and have their emerging artistic and activist voices celebrated. We aim to create safe spaces for LGBTQ youth to tell their stories to a supportive group of their peers and allies. Queeriosity takes the form of both a six-week writing workshop and a curated performance showcase.


Queeriosity Performance Showcase is an annual spoken word and performance event dedicated to young people who are reshaping the conversations about sexuality, identity, and community.

Saturday, June 18, 2016 • 7pm
924 Brannan Street | San Francisco | FREE
Co-Presented by The National Queer Arts Festival


We facilitate a writing & performance workshop that explores how self-identified LGBTQ youth develop a deeper awareness of their sexual identities while celebrating their queerness. Workshop includes a stipend for participation. Applications for 2015 have closed.

• 18 hours worth of personal and artistic development education
• $13/hour stipend for participating in a six week writing & performance series
