Gays For Plays is a social group with a mission to encourage engagement with and support of the Atlanta theatre scene.  We want to raise awareness of — and make it easier and more fun to explore — the great selection of theatre organizations and productions around town.  Our events are also a great opportunity to meet other local theatre fans.

Our signature events are GFP Night Outs, where we combine a social event and discounted theatre performance.  We also cooridinate GFP Theatre Nights, highlighting shows where we know a few queer and queer-friendly folks will be in the audience.  We are also beginning to work with interested theatres to create their own Pride Nights where desired.

We primarily use Facebook and email to communicate with members. You can sign up for our email list to stay abreast of our activities or follow us on Facebook.     

Special thanks to our Founding Sponsor, Belong.LGBT, as well as the theatres that make our events possible.


Prior Gays For Plays Events

Theatre Nights are organized to pack the audience with queer and queer-friendly folks; Night Outs include a social event and typically have discounted tickets to make them accessible to as broad an audience as possible.
