Focus Groups L-S: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Focus Group

LGBTQ Focus Group

The LGBTQ Focus Group is committed to interdisciplinary praxis focusing on theatre, performance, sexuality, and gender. We promote perspectives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered persons within ATHE; serve as a medium for the discussion of goals, issues, and artistic expression related to gender and sexuality; monitor and counter the material effects of homophobia in our profession; advise ATHE on guidelines and ethical standards and on retention, promotion, and tenure; and foster new research to include the perspectives of LGBTQ artists and scholars. LGBTQ sponsors an annual pre-conference and a listserv as well as panels at the annual ATHE conference.

For all the latest updates, be sure you are a member of our Facebook group. Visit this page.
