Breaking Our Silence: World Pride Showcase

Breaking Our Silence was launched in the 2013 Poetic License Festival by Joanna Hoffman, Elliot D. Smith, Charan P. Morris and Storm Thomas and has since highlighted the work of over 30 all-star queer poets, playwrights, and musicians, sharing their work and their experiences of coming out, finding love, breaking the silence and speaking out.

On June 27th, we are partnering with National Queer Theaterand the inaugural Criminal Queerness Festival for a special late-night World Pride Breaking Our Silence Event.

50 years ago, the Stonewall Riots was a flashpoint of queer activists breaking the silence and claiming their right to exist. Now, we celebrate five decades of queer voices coming together in resistance, community, and pride.
