This year marks the 15th anniversary of San Francisco’s Fresh Meat Festival, a one-of-a-kind celebration of queer and transgender performance art. Over the years a wide range of singers, actors, poets, clogging, international group acts, dancers (both modern and street), and Cir de Sole style performers have graced the stage. Founder and artistic director Sean Dorsey (whose latest dance The Missing, honors those lost to the early days of the AIDS epidemic) shares some of the highlights from each year.
The 2016 Fresh Meat Festival runs Thursday-Saturday June 16-18th, 8pm at Z Space, 450 Florida Street, San Francisco. Tickets $15 sliding scale.
