Queer Youth Theater Council

Meetings to build Queer community within the AAT community

We are reworking this program - relaunching in 2024

Queer - Santa Cruz Pride

Location: AAT Studio (325 Washington Street, Santa Cruz.

Meetings to build Queer community within the AAT community. The QYTC will meet to discuss inclusion, explore LGBTQIA+ themes and issues within the theater world, and be direct resources for helping to make AAT more inclusive and representative for the Queer community at AAT. As well as serving as a safe space for Queer youth, and potentially doing outreach with GSAs in local schools etc.

We walk in the Pride Parade and work to educate our entire community.

  • Meetings are FREE
  • All are welcome (including allies)

We'll build the events based on how much interest there is and how involved the group wants to be. We will poll Council members to see what times work best for everyone and try to accommodate that as much as possible.

*We also do Queer movie nights. We can also decide to watch a Queer themed movie/play after each meeting (optional for members), one issue with this is that most Queer specific shows tend to have mature content in terms of sex, abuse, depression, drug use, etc.

***If we go down that road we would require parent consent and limiting the movie part to older ages.
