The NYC Celebration of Queer Culture

    July 5 – 29,  2017

    Since 1992, this trailblazing summer festival sizzles with over 100 artists presenting queer theater, dance, music, literature, puppetry, comedy, and homoeroticism for the whole family! The longest-running annual LGBTQ festival in the world, HOT! has been a pioneer of queer arts and culture for 26 years.

    Dixon Place is proud that HOT! serves as a model for other queer festivals across the globe & offers an artistic refuge to so many passionate voices in our community. With gender, race, and age equality as our mandate, we strive to build on DP’s progressive legacy by continuing our commitment to unconditional inclusivity.

    Join us for our opening night kick-off performance party, hosted by Tamil-Sri Lankan American trans artist D’Lo, with sneak peeks of our lineup of New York’s most spectacular queer artists on July 5.
