Fresh Meat Productions builds community by creating, presenting and touring year-round multidisciplinary transgender arts programs. Our guiding principles are access, relevance, artistic excellence and community engagement.

Fresh Meat Productions’ award-winning programs promote social justice, solidarity and the evolution of transgender arts and culture. We create, commission and present new work. We inspire audiences, support artists, provide mentorship and learning, promote transgender expression and visibility, transform culture and build community. Fresh Meat’s groundbreaking performances and events are celebrated for artistic excellence, accessibility, relevance and innovation.

Fresh Meat’s programs empower transgender artists and audiences, expand the repertoire of original work authentically exploring transgender experience, bring visibility to transgender and gender-non-conforming communities, connect transgender artists with diverse audiences, promote the artistic development of emerging and established transgender artists, elevate trans and queer voices, stories and bodies that have historically been excluded from the arts, promote dialogue and build community. Fresh Meat Productions was founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Sean Dorsey and is based in San Francisco.

Fresh Meat Productions is the first and only organization of our kind in the US. Join our email list or learn about our upcoming events.
