The Theater Offensive

Year Participated



Boston, MA


The Theater Offensive’s mission is to present liberating art by, for, and about queer and trans people of color that transcends artistic boundaries, celebrates cultural abundance, and dismantles oppression. Our main programs can be divided into two categories: True Colors OUT Youth Theater and our OUT’hood series. True Colors is a devised theater program that uses non Eurocentric models of theater-making to create works based on Queer youth’s lived experiences that are then toured at local Boston Public Schools. OUT’hood series encompasses productions and two residencies, one for youth and one for adults, and seeks to build Queer spaces that are rapidly disappearing in BIPOC neighborhoods. OUT’hood focuses on mentorship, increasing opportunities for local QTPOC artists, and showcasing the diversity of Boston’s communities of color.
