Proposal deadline EXTENDED to Thursday, March 15th at 11:59 PM
Performances: Friday and Saturday, May 11-12, 2018
at Open Eye Figure Theatre, 506 E 24th Street, Minneapolis
Curated and hosted by Hector Chavarria (The Big Gay Mexican)
Curator Hector Chavarria (a.k.a. The Big Gay Mexican) provides a platform for voices rarely commemorated: the queer Latinx community. In a world where being queer is unwelcomed, and in a country that marginalizes Latinx people, the time has come to expose the narrative of a doubly-oppressed subculture filled with beauty and resilience. We invite queer Latinx artists of all genres, disciplines, and experience levels to send proposals that celebrate the allure of living with these two identities. Embrace your utter fabulousness, and declare through performance what it means to be a proud member of the queer Latinx community.

Each proposal represents an "act" producing 10-15 minutes of content, regardless of the number of people involved. While Curators may decide to offer performers a different rate, typically Curators select 6 acts, and each ACT is paid a fee of $60/night, guaranteed unless the show is canceled, the artist(s) does not perform, or the artist(s) leaves before the end of the event. Additionally, each act will receive advanced tickets to sell for the run of the show. Artists can offer ticket sales to their friends and fans at a discounted rate of $10/each, and keep all of that money — it goes directly into their pockets. Acts appearing in two nights of a show will get 5 tickets to sell for the run, and acts appearing in only one night of a show will get 2 tickets to sell for the run. Each act can then expect to make fees of $170 for 2 nights, and $80 for 1 night, plus additional revenue if the event is over 80% sold.
