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.

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.
