We have an antidote to being physically disconnected from our communities! An interactive, online show performed live touring the streets of San Francisco…virtually.
OUT of Site: SOMA is virtual-live-street-theater project that explores the history of San Francisco’s South of Market district, a catalyst for radical change and a stronghold for queer and activist organizing.
Our online show is a wild hybrid of immersive theater, drag, live music, puppetry, a virtual tour, a dance party – all in celebration of our radical LGBTQ+ ancestors and the worlds that they shaped.
This project honors stories of resistance, resilience and rising to the occasion during moments of tremendous adversity. Looking back to queer history is a fortifying and inspiring way of reminding ourselves of exactly how we can and will get through this current moment… together.
With a recognition that now is the time to prioritize Black art and artistic voices we will be donating a portion of our proceeds from the show to national and local organizations that are doing on the ground work to support queer Black lives now: TGI Justice Project and the Center for Black Equity.
