LGBTQ+ Circus Art & Activism
You may remember them from their breath taking 2016 short film, “The Arrow” or their appearance on America’s Got Talent. Starting tonight July 11th at 9pm EST and every Sunday night after, they and other LGBTQ+ circus artist join together as “The Circus X” for live interactive streaming performances on YouTube.
“Log in at 9pm every Sunday starting July 11th to watch us bring our previous LGBTQ+ circus films to life LIVE. Where you’ll be able to ask questions with the artists after, get an inside look into the training and production side of things, AND learn more about the meaning of the acts and the stories of the artists. THE X CIRCUS is my attempt to create a platform for LGBTQ+ artists to openly express queer stories and art, and to present acts that normally are not always seen on stage. My goal is to create more normalcy and a kinda world for the queer community.”
