The best LGBT things to do in New York this week

Time Out New York
“The Best LGBTQ Theater Festival in New York!”
— The Village Voice
The longest-running annual LGBTQ festival in the world, HOT! has been a pioneer of queer arts and culture for 27 years. This trailblazing summer festival sizzles with over 100 artists presenting queer theater, dance, music, literature, puppetry, comedy, and homoeroticism for the whole family!

About the Play

A boy shows up in your bedroom, offers you some Fairy Dust, and takes you on a journey you will never forget. Peter, his drug-addled fairy “friend” Tweaker Bell, Pan’s Lost Boys, and the coked-out Darling children find themselves face-to-face with Captain Hook, so-named for an infamously missing appendage. I Do Believe in Fairies is a violent, ridiculous adventure that upends the mythical tale of the boy who never grew up.

The Killer Darlings, comprised of rebellious souls from the depths of lower Manhattan, work to contemporize and destroy the ideals of ridiculous theatre, queer theatre, musical theatre, devised theatre, paradoxical theatre, morally-depraved theatre, and theater theatre. They are: Ryan Beaghler, Ties Jansen, Chance Riley Kester, Sam Korobkin, Taylor Larson, Jason Marrs, Tom Pastor, Tamar Rubin, and Elizabeth M. Stater.
