Proud Performing Arts

Proud Performing Arts is a global network that aims to empower, encourage and elevate performing arts with a LGBTQ+ perspective and artists working with the matter. The network is a platform for solidarity and inspiration and strives to bring forward the different conditions for LGBTQ+ people all around the world.

The network was initiated at the World Congress of ITI in July 2017 by the Swedish ITI center. In 2018 we had the first official meeting at Euro Pride in Stockholm. In 2019 there will be a meeting in Miami in June as well as at Stockholm Pride (as part of the Proud Performing Arts Festival).


  • Proud Performing Arts should be a platform for exchanging experiences.
  • Proud Performing Arts should facilitate distribution of and make visible performing arts with a LGBTQ+ perspective.
  • Proud Performing Arts should inspire to exchange between artists, producers and presenters.
