QUEER, ILL, & OKAY a JRV MAJESTY Production for Poonie's Cabaret @ Links Hall

QUEER, ILL, & OKAY is an annual experimental performance series that creates brave new narratives, reimagines potential of queer community, and shatters stigma.

What does it look like to be queer and live with HIV, mental, or chronic illness today? How do we navigate relationships with family, friends, lovers, the world? What changes have occurred, are occurring now in treatment? How do we LIVE?

QUEER, ILL, & OKAY raises these powerful questions and more. Disclosure, safety, sex, beauty, love, resilience, work and werk, faith, fear, hope.
