Pride Youth Theater Alliance

The Pride Youth Theater Alliance began as a cohort of directors, educators, and activists representing Queer Youth Theater (QYT) programs from across the U.S. and Canada. The alliance was officially founded in 2012 to collectively raise awareness and place institutional unity behind the work of individual QYT programs, the field at large, and the needs of communities where QYT groups exist. The PYTA Conference, an annual convening of leaders from the field, has become a defining component of PYTA’s programmatic activity.

Mission: The Pride Youth Theater Alliance is a growing network that advances the practice of Queer Youth Theater by providing emerging and established leaders in the field with resources and opportunities to exchange, collaborate, and learn.

Vision: A world where all artistic, cultural, and human service organizations have sustainable, safe space for queer and allied youth.
