Connections to the past and to each other have been severed by dark forces that made us forget who we are and where we’ve come from. Set in the future where borders as we once knew them on Earth no longer exist, join our empathic adventurer/ storyteller Maya Chinchilla as she travels through the ether to unite a crew of healers, artists, shapeshifters and timekeepers using prayers, poetry, movement and performance to uncover what became of the Central American Diaspora.

Kimberlynn Acevedo AKA DJ Femme Papi
Jose Richard Aviles
Maya Chinchilla
Roy Guzmán
Lulu Matute
Celia Sagastume

and Señorito Chorizo

NATIONAL QUEER ARTS FESTIVAL 2021

“Since 1998, QCC has curated and produced 24 National Queer Arts Festivals (NQAF) that have featured more than 2,300 LGBTQ+ artists in over 920 different arts and cultural events. The festival has become a bay area cultural institution bringing to life hundreds of performances, visual arts exhibitions, literary readings and film screenings.

Our Creating Queer Community (CQC) program has commissioned over 400 LGBTQ+ artists to create, produce, commission, promote, and document original works examining LGBTQ+ social justice and civil rights issues that debut at the National Queer Arts Festival.”

THE FUTURE IS…

“This year’s theme, The Future is… allows us to collectively embody the future. This year’s festival honors QCC artists and our art as it is today, while also opening the door to imagination and manifestation of the future through the eyes of the artists centering Queer, Trans, gender nonconforming, Intersex, Two-spirit, Black, Indigenous, people of color (QTI2SBIPOC artists) and giving voice to the truth we know – the future is already here, an the future is us. 

Over the years, our Creating Queer Community (CQC) program has commissioned over 400 LGBTQ+ artists to create, produce, comission, promote, and document original works examining LGBTQ+ social justice and civil rights issues that debut at the National Queer Arts Festival.”

-Natalia Vigil, Executive Director
