Jaw-dropping vogue dance, boundary-breaking hip-hop, transgender opera, world champion gay ballroom, queer bachata, gender-bending dance theater, live music and more? It must be the FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL — the nation’s most celebrated transgender and queer performance festival!

The 16th annual FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL offers Bay Area audiences the artistic antidote to Tr*mp – with fierce, exquisite, unapologetic trans and queer performance that is insightful, powerful, sexy and soul-feeding.

Artistic Director Sean Dorsey says “I curated this special lineup as a love letter to our trans and LGBTQ communities – to give us much-needed spiritual nourishment, comic relief, sass, mood elevation, love and power in the face of continued attacks on our communities.”
