Queer Monologue Night Info
It came to our attention that finding appropriate monologue material is an issue in the community. We have several colleagues who have pointed out they have written and performed material, but since it is unpublished, it's often hard to find. We're here to help!
We'll link to a database of existing monologues, https://nonbinarymonologues.wordpress.com/. If you'd like to write some new stuff for us to post, or get up and perform a monologue, let us know. Email email@example.com. We'll also provide some savvy directors and a supportive community to discuss what works, what doesn't, and how to tailor these monologues to express YOU. (There is no fee charged to the actors, so no pay for writers, other than whatever donations are collected at the event.)
Let's get creative, people!
