We do welcome heterosexual folks, as long as they respect the queer space. If you are a straight person who wants to perform, you can sign up on the list, straight folks can perform too, as long as you understand our mission is to support queer artists and make them a priority.

Signing up gets you 5 minutes to do one piece and one piece only.

We will stop you if you go over time.

We want to hear your most vulnerable, new, old, tough, worked on, fresh stuff, whatever it is as long as you’ve made something. Come to show off, or come to try something new.
