Adept: A Sick/Disabled LGBTQ Show

Gay City Arts presents Adept: A Sick/Disabled LGBTQ Show
Jan 19-21
General Admission $15-$20 / Ally Ticket $15 / Students, Seniors and People with Disabilities $12

Adept will feature poetry, storytelling, dance, comedy, music, and JOY from sick and disabled LGBTQ people. “The cruelty of ableism: it robs us from each other.” (Disability Justice advocate and writer, Mia Mingus) This show intends to interrupt that separation by bringing community together to celebrate sick and disabled voices. The joy of community is that it returns us to one another. The show will be ASL and Deaf/Blind interpreted, and also have live subtitling.

Accessibility Info: The Calamus Auditorium at Gay City is ADA accessible, has two single-stall all-gender restrooms, and is a fragrance-free space. For more information about accessibility at Gay City please visit

If you need DeafBlind interpretation services, please let us know by January 13th at noon so that we can reserve an interpreter for the show you are attending.

It is Gay City’s policy that smoking and use of fragrances are prohibited on Gay City Health Project premises, including all Gay City Health Project sponsored events and activities. The health of some of our staff, volunteers, and clients may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances–which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure.

Coming to Gay City having used fragranced products on your body or your clothing means that those who are sensitive are faced with the choice to stay and get sick or leave and be unable to access important services or do their job. We ask your help in making Gay City accessible to all by coming to Gay City fragrance free.

*Sponsor Tickets: Gay City relies on the generosity of our patrons and supporters to help bring about programs like Gay City Arts. Spending a little more on your ticket will help keep our program running and our ticket prices low.

**Radical Hospitality Tickets are provided as a homage to a concept first pioneered by Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis, meant to “erase economic barriers in pursuit of building a truly inclusive” audience. Accordingly, the show on Wednesday, Dec 7th will be free for everyone.

***Ally Tickets Purchase an Ally Ticket in addition to your own in order to provide an opportunity for someone who can't afford the ticket price to attend the show (and making sure LGBTQ Sick and Disabled People get paid for their art!). For each Ally Ticket sold, we will make one additional Radical Hospitality Ticket available.
