About Queer Family Series

Queer Family Series (QFS) offers produced and presented work centered on exploring all facets of queerness from as early as our first memories to our last.  This program focuses on social education & awareness through transmedia productions and intergenerational community engagement– connecting queer children, families and elders with accessible art that captures the rigidness of heteronormativity and imagines a world where people can present as they wish.  We wish to uplift the core value and belief that theater is an essential fabric and texture in how we communicate to each other, as well as how we communicate our creativity and desires.

QFS sprouted from a community need from Boston based queer elders that spoke to the lack of accessible, queer family programming during the ongoing pandemic.  Our elders voiced their inability to leave their homes amid social and cultural organizing and protesting, but wanted to be involved and kept abreast. In addition to elders requests, during the pandemic we heard from queer caretakers and parents. They spoke about the shift to working from home -- being charged with not only their career workload, but teaching and instructing their children through online classes.  Caretakers were looking for a respite in the storm, and reliable online programming to engage their young folks. QFS is TTO’s response to these needs!
