Check out our Queerly Festival Today!

Queerly ends July 3rd!

Since 2014, the Queerly Festival has been a platform for LGBTQIAP+ indie artists to express their Pride. With the loss of the NYC Pride March, as well as many other commemorative and joyful events, we want the world to know that Queerly isn’t going anywhere - except online.

We’ll be here-and-queer for artists the way we always are: creating a platform for underrepresented work, supporting new art, and sharing ticket sales with artists. Queer, trans, and nonbinary gig workers have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic. It’s nice to support them with our words, but it’s better to support them with a check. 

- Just follow this link and check out the fest! -

Watch the new episode of The Reparations Show here!

- If you want the artists to see and respond to your comments, you can watch on Facebook Live here -

  • Funny Women of a Certain Age
  • STREAMED LIVE FROM THE kRAINE THEATER Funny Women of a Certain Age Comedy is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all.  They’ve raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work. Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the ass any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”- creator Carole MontgomeryFunny Women Of A Certain Age the TV special premiered March 23, 2019 on the Showtime Network to rave reviews.

  • The Reparations Show
  • WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR US LATELY?If you don’t have a good answer, we’ll send you our Venmo username.The Reparations Show is a variety show that will center stories created by and about Black and Indigenous artists. This weekly show kicks off on Juneteenth as part of FRIGID New York’s Queerly Festival, and each week will be hosted by a different BIPOC artist. The show is the brainchild of Erez Ziv, managing artistic director of FRIGID New York, and Kevin R. Free, the Curator of The Queerly Festival. It was created as a way to offer paid opportunities for BIPOC artists. Besides featuring work by these artists, each episode will include a segment called “This Week in Reparations” that examines an organization’s statement of solidarity with the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and keeps track of the work they have done toward that goal since releasing the statement. Our first three hosts:Azure D. Osborne-Lee (June 19) (he/him, they/them) is a Black queer artist, organizer, and shapeshifter from south of the Mason-Dixon Line. He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with a cat named Cream Cheez. Find out more at: azureosbornelee.comKevin R. Free (June 26) (he/him) is Black, gay and sometimes just plain queer. He is an Obie award-winning theatermaker (25 years in NYC and regionally as an actor, playwright, producer and director) and a multi-award-winning audiobook narrator. More at Toussaint (July 3) (he/him) is a multi-award winning composer, arranger, playwright and producer. He is the Artistic Director of A Mile In My Shoes Inc., and one of the founding playwrights of the Obie award-winning The Fire This Time Festival.

  • im ur hamlet.
  • What happens when a bunch of actors get together on Zoom to try to put on a production of Hamlet? Can Shakespeare even be DONE with a lag? And how about the large personalities involved - it's hard to grab attention from someone else when you're not even in the same room as everyone.Viewing link sent out one hour before showtime.

  • Hamlet: la Telenovela
  • Hamlet couldn’t possibly get more dramatic…or could it? It couldn’t possibly be funny…or could it? Shakespeare and Telenovelas? A match made in heaven? To believe or not to believe it…that is the question...Viewing link will be sent out one hour before showtime.

  • The Murder of Gonzago
  • The Murder of Gonzago is, of course, the play-within-the-play that Claudius so rudely interupts in Hamlet. Shakespeare never wrote the rest of the play. So we did.When Lucianus wants to murder his uncle Gonzago, his every attempt goes awry, taking out one servant after another. Bodies pile up, a bumbling detective intervenes, gangsters lurk, and the Bohemian Bear closes in.Your screen becomes a stage where characters interact directly with each other, move around, exchange messages, choke, poison, even stab each other across their windows. This is everything you wish your Zoom meetings could be!(The show is best viewed from a lap-top or desk-top to get the full interactions between characters.)Zoom link will be sent out one hour before showtime.
