Amplifying Queer Voices, Celebrating Our Stories.

Our History
Launched in 2019 by the original founders Michael Urie, Doug Nevin, and Nick Mayo, in partnership with Rattlestick Theater, the initial festival hosted 19 separate works and involved more than 200 artists over five days. Pride Plays then presented a virtual festival in 2020, along with several online workshops. Pride Plays has also supported LGBTQIA+ creative initiatives, including Donja R. Love's Write Out Loud program. In 2024,
 Sam Gravitte and Sammy Lopez joined as the Pride Plays 2024 Celebration producers.

Our Mission
Pride Plays’ mission is to celebrate and platform queer works, introduce new voices to the theatrical ecosystem, and support the next generation of LGBTQIA+ artists. We hope to foster a deeper understanding of and appreciation for queer stories.
