OUTstages is Victoria BC’s first queer theatre festival – a week of outrageous stories, surprises, parties and performances from and for the queer community and beyond.
This festival has its finger on the pulse of the queer theatre scene and is proud to bring some of the most exciting, daring and thought-provoking performances to Victoria for the 3rd Annual OUTstages Festival, June 20-24, 2017.
