"QUEER PLACE, QUEER SPACE” is a virtual cabaret featuring eight incredible 2SLGBTQIA+ artists and performers 14-30 years old, hosted by Augusto Bitter and Monica Garrido. The cabaret explores how young artists define queer spaces, whether it be through body, mind, physical space or community around you. The definition of place has shifted over the last few months. The places that form our queer identity: theatres, cafes, workplaces, galleries, are no longer options for queer expression. While we are isolated, our identities are being constantly redefined by our new daily spaces: our homes, our walking trails, and Zoom performances with friends and strangers.
Since Soulpepper’s inception, youth programming and outreach has been an essential part of our mandate, we continue this work virtually in hopes that we can give young 2SLGBTQIA+ artists a platform.
Soulpepper is pleased to make donations to Friends of Ruby and The 519, please consider making a donation to these incredible organizations supporting the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Toronto!
