All in-person Queer Memoir events are canceled until further notice for obvious Pandemic Covid19 Is Real reasons (sigh. why do we even have to say that).
BUT we are very excited to be creating Queer Memoir LIVESTREAM shows which can involve storytellers from anywhere with internet! Most of these are in conjunction with our amazing NYC venue Caveat, they’ve been taking the lead on making great streaming shows that work with–rather than against–this new reality.
Our next virtual show is June 13th in collaboration with the Reimagine End Of Life Festival, the Queens Public Library and the Queens Memory Project. The theme is Queer Grief Observed and we’re focusing on stories that demonstrate the creative ways our LGBT communities deal with caregiving, end of life matters and grief. LGBT people have a long tradition of–as Paul Monette writes– “fall[ing] in love anyway, embracing between the bombs” and we have plenty of hard-earned wisdom to share beyond our community that can help, inspire and inform the COVID-19 pandemic.

UPCOMING SHOWS INCLUDE: Queer Memoir HOSPITAL/HEALTHCARE (DATE TBA & ongoing), Queer Memoir: HAIR (July), Queer Memoir PAPERWORK (August) and Queer Memoir FEAR (September) If you want to be updated when we plan another show, please sign up for our email list here. Never more than two emails a month, promise!
