Programs

Fresh Meat Productions invests in the creative expression and cultural leadership of transgender and gender-nonconforming communities. We create and commission new work, present performing arts programs, conduct education and engagement, and advocate for justice and equity in the Arts.

Our programs are authentically and intentionally reflective of – and deeply relevant to – transgender and gender-nonconforming communities:
