NIGHTLY LINE UP ANNOUNCED SOON!

 

Jaw-dropping trans opera, boundary-breaking storytelling, 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 17th annual FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL offers Bay Area audiences 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.”
