New York's preeminent LGBTQ arts festival returns for another season of exciting work on stage, on film and on the air. The Fresh Fruit Festival 2024 Main-Stage will premiere a dozen new works exploring the LGBTQ experience.

Established in 1991, All Out Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit devoted to bringing together the diverse artistic, organizational, political and financial resources of the LGBTQ community in order to fight intolerance. All Out Arts fulfills its mission by supporting arts organizations within the community through fiscal sponsorship, events, contests, collaborations, networking events for emerging artists and by sponsoring productions, concerts and exhibitions of visual arts. They confront homophobia through the humanizing influence of the arts, and the Fresh Fruit Festival is the primary expression of the All Out Arts mission.

The Fresh Fruit Festival was the creation of two long established LGBT community arts groups: New Village Productions and All Out Arts. Now the festival is presented by All Out Arts to celebrate the LGBTQ community's unique perspective, creativity & diversity—local, national and international—on stage, on film and on the air.

Events include:
Iggy Mitzner, a non-binary L.A. Public School Teacher, has been dating movie star, Fenway Cooper, for a year now, and not a soul knows about it. Fenway’s big break only complicates the arrangement.

The Memory Of
We begin in a memory. The past slowly melts into the present where we see Renee grieving Brianna’s death (or so we think), struggling to make a decision as to whether or not she should take her own life or how to move on.

Clara & Carmilla
Clara (she/they) discovers a vampire novel written before Dracula that follows a sapphic relationship between the vampire Carmilla and the main characters. Clara becomes obsessed with the novel and one night actually starts to see Carmilla.

Café Americano
Texas is a young accomplished playwright-actor-TV writer reeling from the premature death of his husband. He fled from New York to Paris to attempt to write his next play but meeting a barista’s husband complicates his world.

Ercolé & Megara (staged reading)
Ercolé & Megara is the story of a lesbian couple where the one partner is in transition from female to male and their journey as the one transitions physically and the other transitions emotionally and how they find their voices as a couple and independently.
