NYC Queer Playback Theater, virtual performance

June 13 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free – $12

NYC Queer Playback Theater presents “Pride in Progress” on
Sunday June 13 at 8 pm EDT in a virtual interactive playback performance to honor Pride.

This event is open to all and will run approximately
90 minutes.

During the performance the audience will be invited to tell stories from their lives, and
the story will then be “played back” with facilitation, improvisational forms, and music by an
ensemble, all around the theme of “Pride in Progress”.

As we reflect on Pride in the midst of a pandemic and a racial reckoning, “Pride in
Progress” hopes to ask what we are proud of individually and collectively, and what
progress is left to be gained?

We invite all people, those from the LGBTQ+ community and allies, to reflect on our  lives within our community, our nation and globally in the space that we are creating to  encourage openness, acceptance, respect, and equality regardless of one’s gender  identity, sexual orientation, body size, ability, or status.  

Personal sharing is encouraged and entirely voluntary. Feel free to tell a story or to  enjoy the stories of others.


Audience (by age)
Adults (Ages 18 and up), Teens (Ages 13-17)
