40 years of queer... and we're just getting started

For 40 years, Buddies productions, festivals, and community programming have uncovered unique queer viewpoints and offered theatrical experiences like no other company in this city or this country. We have introduced generations of artists to the world, and generations of audiences to the transformative power of seeing our stories played out onstage. We have seen our community suffer great losses and make great gains. We have grown. We have persisted. We have held our space.

This anniversary season, we reclaim works from the not-so-distant past, and we showcase the new; we tip our hats to our history, to our future, and to the continuous present.
