2017 Propeller Fund Awardee ICUQTS: International Chicago Underground Queer Transcendance Symposium takes place September 29 and 30, 2018.

Presented by TRQPITECA, ICUQTS is an all-ages interdisciplinary festival celebrating creative cultural engagement with local and international queer communities through exhibition of visual & performance art, music, video and film, speakers, workshops, and vendors.

The symposium will center the art and culture of underground, queer, trans, gender non-conforming, people of color, femme, and non-binary artists. In addition to highlighting Chicago-based artists, the work of national and international artists will be featured in order to encourage discussion and engagement within the global queer movement.
