Best Gay Theatre Festivals – The Nomadic Boys

Best Gay Theatre Festivals

‘The theatre’s so obsessed
With dramas so depressed
It’s hard to sell a ticket on Broadway
Shows should be more pretty
Shows should be more witty
Shows should be more…
What’s the word?
Gay…?’

These words were sung by the character of Roger in the Broadway show, ‘The Producers’, and we couldn’t agree more. When it comes to seeing a show, it needs a dash of campy flair that only gay people can bring.

What is it about the theatre that gay people love? Is it the costumes? The actors? The stories?

With both of us being big drama fanatics (both inside and outside the theatre house), we’ve particularly found theatre to be a much more inclusive and open-minded mode of entertainment than film or TV.

With the pink wave riding across the world, and more countries polishing up their LGBTQ rights records, queer representation is at a crucial point to help push those lawmakers over the rainbow picket line.

This is why we feel that gay theatre festivals are super important for the cause. They help increase visibility for our community, not just for heterosexuals, but for ourselves as well. There are many different kinds of people in the community that have different experiences or have varying privileges. Whilst we, as gay men, undergo certain challenges that our straight peers don’t have to think about, our struggles differ from those who are trans, disabled or queer. Gay theatre festivals bring all of our stories into the light and can be quite a harrowing experience for all who attend.

We’ve put together a list of some of the best gay theatre festivals from across the world.
