The Theater Offensive

The Theater Offensive presents liberating art by, for, and about queer and trans people of color that transcends artistic boundaries, celebrates cultural abundance, and dismantles oppression. This is done through programs informed by Queer Aesthetics.The idea of aesthetics helps us understand the ways we experience beauty, and gives us a framework to talk about how we name and claim beauty and why we choose what we choose. Aesthetics are reflected in the realms of belonging. They communicate a shared set of ideas, values, geographies, and historical defining moments.
