HOT!, the oldest annual festival of its kind in the world, crowned “The BEST LGBTQ Theater Festival in New York!” by The Village Voice, HOT! returns to Dixon Place for its 27th annual NYC celebration of Queer Culture! 

Since 1992, this trailblazing summer festival sizzles with over 100 artists presenting queer theater, dance, music, literature, puppetry, comedy, and homoeroticism for the whole family! The longest-running annual LGBTQ festival in the world, HOT! has been a pioneer of queer arts and culture for 27 years.

Festival Highlights:

Longing by the River 
A solo dance touching on several textures of performing desire and destination in a personal narrative of liminal struggles, and overcomings. It is a queer temporal journey through diva performance, choreography, and song.

Written by Jay Stull
A queering of the Christian church service theatrically. Queer songs. Queer readings. A queer sermon. A place for memory.

Defiant, Majestic & Beautiful
Brin Solomon
A snark of trans femmes singing the songs they don’t get to sing anywhere

Cruisical: A Lesbian Musical
Anna Lublina, Lilly Kaplan, Elena Rose Light
An anachronistic musical comedy that gives six historic lesbians the tropical lesbian vacation they deserved.
Age Guidance

Age Guidance: 16
