To be a part of a QUEERSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, a performance and art event on July 20th, 2013 at a wheelchair-accessible venue.
Funded by APIRG (Alberta Public Interest Research Group)
‘Theme’ = transformations, tricksters, dream-states, unexpected couplings, and more!
Queer Royale is a drag performance troupe in Edmonton and the hosts/organizers of this event. For this event, our intention is to showcase art and performance from QTPLGB (Queer, trans*, pansexual, lesbian, gay, and bisexual) communities and invite connection, collaboration and conversation among folks from all aspects of the community. Together with you we would like to create safe(r) performance spaces that are intended to be cooperative, consensual, accessible, and entertaining. We want to invite people to have some good old fashion (and more inclusive) FUN! We also invite people to consider how we experience oppression/discrimination in unique and multiple ways and what accessibility means to us.
Participants will be asked to uphold our safe(r) space guidelines to the best of their ability.
We would like to invite: creative types, movers, dancers, performance artists, spoken word, drag kings, queens, burlesque, boilesque, poets, multimedia and installation projects, collaborations, and/or something you have in mind that we haven’t thought of! We welcome women, men, transgender people & spirits, those living with a chronic medical condition, visible or invisible, your dreams and desires and passions, your emotions, people who identify as artists, and people who don’t, gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual, and queer people, humans of all ages, survivors, mystics, seekers, believers of all kinds, humans of all sizes, shades, shapes and abilities.
Two-spirit, trans* folk, people of color, and people with alternate abilities will be prioritized in the selection of performers.

• Your name (chosen if you prefer)
